Shortly after I wrote the last post, I went on Facebook and was lamenting about running. Finally, Kat just said DO IT. So I did.
And it was a very good thing. I ran 4 miles. The first two were a bit rough with shins tightening up all the time. But the last half were great. I walked only a couple times - over the wooden bridge and then after a steep hill for about 20 feet and then I finished up.
It was good of me to go, and I really owe it to Kat for kicking my butt into going. I feel much better today than I have in awhile. I've even been going through papers, in honor of Discardia, of course, and made cookies tonight! And the cookies turned out really well, so my mood must be better.
Well, back to work. I have a dinner date here tomorrow night so I better get my apartment cleaned (ie straightened) up so I don't look like a total slob. Plus that will help me feel better, too.
