Before: Since Sunday, I have been struck with stiffness in my neck, pain in my abdomen, soreness in my eyes and across my brow, and a general sense of lethargy and tiredness. I cannot tell if it is the weather, lack of sleep, anxiety over my responsibilities, or what. I have not run in, oh, two days, but it feels much longer.
I do not wish to run right now, but as the wife missed an episode of Drinking With Ladies so that I could, I feel obligated.
Distance: 3.25 miles
After Yes. That was mental. Just ... mental. On the road ten seconds, I felt more alive, and like myself. Thoughts connect ... my eyes still hurt, but my stomach has calmed. Tomorrow makes more sense. Running does its job.
