You know those runs when you hit your distance goal and stop immediately, even when you have a couple blocks left to get home? Um, yeah. That would be me today.
The last few months have been crazy. I've spent less than a week at home since November and have driven & flown thousands of miles around the country for interviews. I managed to cram a couple runs and walks into my schedule while in Seattle (ouch! hills!) but that was about it. Now I keep switching night & day shifts while working in the ER and it's messing me up. Luckily I had yesterday & today off, along with tomorrow. (Not that I'm counting, but I'll be done with ER in precisely 10.5 days.) Taking full advantage of the time off I ran 9 miles at pace yesterday & 19 miles today.
How did that go? Um... You know those runs when you hit your distance goal and stop immediately? (Did I already ask that?) I definitely hit 19.00 miles and walked the last few blocks. And ran into a couple friends on the run & made a point to stop and say hello. And ask how they're doing. And chat about the weather. But other than that, it was awesome.
There's something about being stressed & squeezing a run into your hectic day. Nothing can compare. How's your running going?
ps. You know if you google "zen runner," this is what you get?
|Awesome. Now that's some zen.|
