There is that old adage that says if "You fail to plan, then plan to fail." Sometimes, even when you do plan this thing called reality gets in your way and just messes up your entire universe.
I was scheduled to run today. Today is my long day, three to three and one half miles. I laid all my clothes out last night and was all psyched up. I rolled out of bed this morning and noticed a "twinge" in my left knee. Some of that is just part of being fifty seven, I know but it didn't get any better. It didn't get any worse, just not better. We needed ice for later today, so I walked up to the corner market and back. Knee still hurt.
Now I am getting mad. This hasn't been the best week for me and I am going to be traveling all next week so I set my running and personal training schedule to reflect the travel. Not running today messed all that up.
It's beautiful here this morning. I took my lap top and came out on the patio to write this. I haven't been able to do that since mid-May. I should be running!!! I am seething.
I'm not going to run. I mean, my heart is saying "go,go,go." My head knows otherwise. My heart and head are fighting and I am getting hit with all the BS they are tossing at each other. I know I cant control this. It is what it is, but gosh I have had enough failure this week!!
There I feel better. Thank you for loving me.
Joan says I can go shopping with her today for shoes, and fall mums.
