Here We Go Again

here we go again

Well, it’s that time.

For someone like me, whose only consistency is inconsistency, you’ll know what I mean.

It feels like your about to dip your toe into a pond of freezing water. The situation feels murky, uncertain. You find yourself looking in the mirror, wondering “how out of shape could I be?”. Your quads aren’t as sharp and crisp underneath your skin, your calf muscles are sleepy, and the most revealing of all-your running shoes are clean.

I’m going to start running again, and tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. is my designated starting line. 

The last time I ran was last Sunday. I had a brief rendezvous with the treadmill, but had to quit when a pack of my male relatives went down in the basement to watch the Super Bowl. I wanted to be courteous since the treadmill is pretty loud and the Super Bowl only comes once a year, so that ended that.

The biggest damper for me is a feeling of guilt. Am I going to actually become a runner again, or will I let life get in my way and quit when it gets hard? Will I fall back in love with running, or will I break up? Will my relationship with my body image ever improve? Or will I always be a whiny heap of laziness?

I guess I can only try and see.

Anybody have any tips or advice? Please share!

  1. The one thing that gets me out running is the thought that it’s the only thing that keeps me sane! I was really stressed out last week, and I know it was partly due to the fact that I didn’t get a chance to run.

      I agree, I completely forgot how good running was for me until I ran Saturday. It’s the best pain reliever and mood booster. I personally have always struggled with abusing food and caffeine to make myself feel better, yet I seldom take advantage of the endorphins my body naturally produces when I exercise!
