I was aggravated this morning. Very aggravated. My plan was to go for a run today. I was so irritated, I threw on my sneakers, grabbed my music and hit the pavement in my pajamas. I started off great, but after about 5 minutes, the fact that I just went for it and did not stretch, set in. UGH. What a horrible decision. Even at that point ” Just Keep Swimming” didn’t even work – it was ” Try not to die” . So, I changed up to a walk. Just a plain walk. Let myself down. I think that is the worst part, I did it to myself. Not that I am any sort of runner, but I was ready for the challenge and I failed myself. If I had just taken 10 minutes to stretch out, my legs would not have been as bad and I wouldn’t of been a spazatron.
To boot – after I fail myself and resort to the walk – there is this itty bitty chick running around past me. What ever, I was thinking, like, Really? Was that God’s way of saying – ” Next time stretch , ass hole.” No, I think it was when she lapped me as I attempted walking. Seriously? I do not know this person at all, but it was like she was sent from the God’s to mock me and my failure. Like ” Haha bitch, get back out there and run!” I failed. Massive fail.
So today’s lesson kids is : Stretch! Before your workout! Duh. Ugh.
