A Tough Day

running in rainAfter a tough day at work, the last thing I usually feel like doing is going for a run. But this evening I made an exception.

Normally, after a day like today, I would crash out on the couch or have an early night, hoping that tomorrow would be better; but instead, this evening, all I wanted to do was get out and run off all the tension and frustration of the day.

I was still feeling a bit tired and stiff after last night’s run but, despite the damp and the drizzle, I really enjoyed it.

I took it fairly slowly for the most part, trying to keep a nice even pace. I knew that I didn’t have anywhere near as much energy as yesterday, but that didn’t matter. I’d been pushing myself to the limit all day at work, so tonight was about relaxing and enjoying the moment, while getting one run closer to my goal.

As it turned out, my pace was pretty good by my standards, averaging out at 11:05 minutes per mile. I would like to run faster, but that will come with time and training. For now though, I’m just happy to be able to get out there and run.
