Just Go!

And I promise you will feel so much better!

That’s what I was thinking when I was trying to convince myself to go to the gym. Weather and roads still a little unpredictable to run in the park. So, the gym it had to be.

Well, I was right of course. I did feel better.



It’s just getting dressed and getting out the door that’s the hardest part. Yes, I was not looking forward to running on the treadmill for the second time this week, but I have Kathy Lee and Hoda to thank for getting through the three miles today, and The Lone Ranger for getting me through the three miles on Monday.

This morning I just felt depressed – Brett left for work, I caught up on PLL, the sky was clouding over, my mind was cluttered with unimportant thoughts. I felt jumbled, lethargic and unmotivated. But I got my gym clothes on and headed down the street.

As I walked, my body felt slow, my mind still frazzled and scattered. I was contemplating my work out on the treadmill. Blech, the treadmill. Perhaps an inclined walk. Or should I run? But I was tired. But I was feeling slow. But but but.

Once on the treadmill, I just went for it. Told myself three miles and no less. If I run faster, it’ll be over faster. So I just did it. And I felt good after. It felt good to sweat. To watch some nonsense. I got over the jiggling earphones and just ran … and I’m so glad I did.

Confirmed once again. I love running. It’s my redemption.

I’m so serious when I tell you that work is ruining my running career, which I’ve previously written about. And now, so is winter. Another storm comin’. It’s depressing me so, I guess I’ll use my gym membership. I’ll just suck it up and do some incline work on the treadmill. What a novel idea! But I won’t get there until at least Friday because work is taking over my life right now. Couldn’t be happier that mid-winter break begins Friday at 2:20pm.

Unfortunately I won’t be escaping the winter of NYC, but I will still be in NYC… so I really can’t complain. Well, can I just a little? A beach would be great right now!
