We need more pavement
Friday, January 16, 2009
Some days, there just isn't enough pavement to run off the blues ... logged about 16.3 km in total today, 3 of them this morning with the dog, 2 tonight running with the dog plus 11 or so more solid running without him ... hills ... helped, but didn't fix anything.
Well, of course not. On the upside, I got THAT SONG out of my head by listening to my running playlist, which generally is more funky. On the downside, tonight my "shuffle" feature selected all the sappy sad songs I could possibly have heard.
BUT I do feel a bit better. Maybe a tad stiff ... but it's nice to know I can run far when I want to.
Or need to.
That's the thing about exercise; it releases those lovely little endorphins and even if it doesn't solve anything, you do feel better. AND then you can justify a huge bowl of cereal for dinner. And a Clam Eye*. Maybe two.
To sleep, perchance to dream.....
* Clam Eye: 1/3 to 1/2 Clamato Cocktail and 2/3 to 1/2 Kokanee
