Nearly didn't go out tonight, weather is really poor, I'm not a Monday person in general and it has been a stressful day at work. First day back at school for my kids meant they were tired and irritable which meant my wife was stressed and so on. Luckily we're a close family and everyone has ended there day happy and a good nights sleep will fix the rest.
Any way the point being I realised something tonight, this running thing is a really healthy way of escaping the mundane realities of life. It actually felt like a treat to get out. It may have been raining my legs may have ached but my mind was clear and positive, my old rave tunes were playing, Jo Whitley was encouraging even the rain was pleasantly refreshing.
This run passed really quickly and bye the end I was tired but stress free with that proud feeling that I've accomplished another run.
And as another bonus it's the first run for some time where my knees didn't hurt (am putting this down to my new trainers ).
What a difference half an hour can make🙂
