I was feeling super crappy and down about my progress today. Just a bad mental image day overall. So I decided to bust my butt and grind out an impromptu sweat induced chest workout tonight. Totally pooped and soaked but feeling so much better mentally and overall. Sometimes when you don’t want to do something it may be when you need it the most.
Today’s 9 miles were supposed to be a recovery run, but became more a matter of survival in the thick heat and humidity, struggling to wade through a mix of quicksand and molasses in this western NY rainforest. Feeling much better now that the endorphins have kicked in, we’re getting some rain tomorrow afternoon, meaning probably a morning or early afternoon run.
