For the month of January, I’ve committed to posting every day, having accepted the 30-day challenge.
This is day 25 of 30.
It’s Monday and not much is going on around my house. Belle, after having been at daycare all day playing in the Puppy Bowl, is out cold and I’m taking a rest day after running for 3 days straight.
I’ll say this much, though — for doing more running than I have in a long time, I’m feeling pretty good. Sure, there are the little aches and pains, but overall I don’t feel nearly as beat up as I have in the past when I’ve tried to start running again. I feel like I’m making progress, that it’s starting to feel like it used to.
And that’s the best feeling in the world. And it’s self-perpetuating, too; I know a rest day is the smart thing to do, but there’s a part of my brain that’s ready to go and hit the treadmill again today (of course, the rest of me is beat up from a tiring work day, so there’s that).
In other words, life’s good. And I’m looking forward to getting back to things tomorrow.
