W3R2 - completed despite so many excuses

Evening family,

I've just return from my run :)

Excuses: I feel too heavy after all weekend eating at my parents. I feel too tired after trip from Poland (on Sunday). I feel too sleepy after night when I was up half of it due to stomach issues of my beloved doggy. It's only Monday and I should save energy for the rest of the week. I'm too hungry. My neck hurts after uncomfortable beds and flight.

But who cares about excuses. First thing I did after I came home was put my magic running clothes on. Fully dressed I went for a half an hour warm up walk with my dog, who feels much better today. Home just to feed her, do dishes - still all geared up. And off I went.

It was hard, but easier than I expected :) First 90 seconds were damn long, but second 3 min run finished before I even noticed. And I had almost 1 week break from last run. So never give up! Just go there and admire moon, night lights, breeze on your face, and rythm of your feet on pavements.

Happy running!

Thank you. It wasn't easy, but changing my clothes first thing after work helped A LOT! I think without it I would just hide under the blanket and didn't do all those things I had planned for today. Thanks to the run, I accomplished a lot from my to do list and I am very proud of myself :)


Yaaay go IgaT !!! Beat those excuses into submission.

Glad lovely dog is feeling better too :)

I bet a run was actually just the thing after the flight and all the travels :)

Thanks :) The run was day after the travel, so it was really good to move this body after sitting crumbled in the plane.
