Spring ends today. Happy New Year.
Weariness. I was looking forward to running, and had a good morning (no New Year's hangovers in this house) but as I geared up I started feeling a bit overwhelmed. I ran consistently, without stopping, but after a couple blocks I decided to take the 2 mile course instead of the 3 miler.
I want to run every day, every other day, get back into a rhythm, a need. And to have legs and lungs that can take it. I need to work up to this, lately if I try three or four mile runs, it wrecks me for the rest of the day. That's not how it's supposed to feel.
It is a new year, a big year. Time is an issue, but so is energy, strength, endurance. The exercise is supposed to make everything else possible, and not its opposite.
Every run I will feature a playlist for each year from the one in which I was born to the present, in chronological order. That's new. I am wondering if the forward trajectory of years (rather random annual playlists) will give me additional energy.
Wish me luck. And good luck to you!
