The answer is always to run but I sure wasn't feeling it today.
I was debating getting out there, making excuses. I could run tomorrow or it was acceptable to take an extra day off (all of which are true).
I put on my running clothes on my lunch hour and still the gremlins kept up. I didn't feel like running, was not looking forward to it and even telling myself that I could come back earlier than the intended 45 minutes on my training plan.
After some mild dynamic stretches, squats and squat jumps - I braved the cold. The wind was out to get me, along with those gremlins. I found a headspace run on NRC, Breaking through Barriers (which couldn't have been more fitting). I kept up and kept on. One foot in front of the other, clip clop, clip clop (yes, I felt a little like a horse being prodded). Pretty soon my 45 minutes were done and the run was complete. I am glad I got out there and did it but it wasn't easy today. It was super difficult but I feel better all around now.
Here is to getting out there when we don't want to!!
