How long have I felt I have been on this semi-sabbatical from running? 2 months? I felt the last 2 weeks, I’ve been back into the running groove.
Although DailyMile doesn’t really reflect that…
But last night was basically 8 miles. 8 nearly perfect miles.
With quite a bit of smoke in the air.
|It’s a miracle I am not having more breathing probs then I am today.|
I called in sick to work and running outside was really what I needed to do. I really did need this as a mental health day.
I will be changing jobs soon. I have 2 job offers (although not dream jobs and both a dollar cut in pay) and am playing phone tag for another job (sorta dream job, but not really, but really want it.) Either way, that means I will be having a day job in the next few weeks. That means no more mid-day runs and more sunrise and sunset runs. I was ok with it being 100 degrees last night. I enjoyed not having the noon-time sun beating down on me.
I did not enjoy seeing these things. Are these those Japanese Beetles? Creepy as heck but thankfully NOT a snake.
And if every post-work run in the future is as this one was, I will be quite the happy girl. It was slow, but perfect.
Have you played hooky from work to go run? When did you take your last mental health day?
