That’s right; it’s been four days since I last ran, and it’s bugging me! I ran Wednesday last week, but I had National Guard drill weekend this past Friday through Sunday, and I didn’t have time to run on Friday. Saturday morning was unit PT, but I was selected to be one of the graders for the APFT, so I had to remain in uniform and not exercise. At the end of the day, which was long, I was too worn out to run. Sunday was filled with more National Guard activities and a family emergency that kept me from running.
So, it’s Monday, and it’s a scorcher outside. I will get home in the late afternoon/early evening and bust out my push ups and hit the pavement. I can’t believe the following words are about to flow from my fingertips, but here it is: I can’t wait. My legs are ready. I’m ready. My body needs this.
It won’t be my best or fastest run, but I will get my three+ miles in today. Maybe if I’m feeling okay, maybe more. It’s been a while since I ran four miles. No guarantees, but maybe.
