WORKOUT – Ran outside 11.1 miles/1:36 slower, no music, hilly run
Most of the time I go to bed knowing what, when and where I’m going to run in the morning. So last night I thought I’d do 20 miles early in Newport this morning.
I woke up at 5:45am and did not want to run. I just didn’t feel like it. I farted around for a couple hours before giving myself a self-loving kick in the rear; this is how the conversation went:
I don’t care about your feelings right now. You will feel better afterwards. Take a tip from Nike and Just Do It – GO RUN!
Geez fine, Hitler, I will. Once I was out the door I told myself to run for 10 minutes and if I still wasn’t feeling it, I‘d turn around. That trick always works: 1 mile turned into 11.
And although they weren’t the original 20 I had planned, I still feel better about doing 11 easier miles than sitting on my rear doing 0.
Something else I don’t feel like doing, like, ever?
Paying my taxes. No matter how many years I pay them, I still hate April 14th. And I actually pre-pay them 4 times a year so I dislike them 4x as much.
I’m tempted to pull a Wesley Snipes one of these years, but I’m not really in the market for a new roommate… in a 9×9 cell.
What’s something you don’t ever feel like doing but still do anyways?
Jaymo just said “wiping his butt”. seriously. I married a winner.
