Finally got back on the trail today, if only for a short time. My ankle’s all better, but work has been crazy– I didn’t get home long enough before dark today so I only ran for 10 minutes or so. I tried to run hard to make up for the shortness, I don’t think it really works like that though. It was refreshing and felt really good– just the thing to burn off the icky stress.
Now that it’s getting dark so early I might have to just bite the bullet and join the gym at work and run on the treadmill. It’s not terribly expensive (~$300/year) but running on treadmills is seriously, seriously boring. I always make comments about hamster wheels. But at least I can use the weights and other machines and do some classes too. I’m just terrified of running into my coworkers in there… ugh!
