Last night was one of those nights when I laced up and was all set to run after dinner. Then I let everything stop me in my tracks before I got out that door.
Procrastination seems to kick in every time there a shower of rain. I simply hate running in it.
I did the ironing. All of it. Perfectly, of course.
Did the post dinner clean up, without as much as a grumble.
Helped Teen Son with his homework.
Learnt Pythagoras`s theorem. Willingly. For said son. So we could figure out the area of all sorts of odd combinations of triangles and other shapes. All of which I insisted on discussing with him.
Then I had to ring every member of my family. Of course. And send a few texts too.
Honestly, the only thing that got me out there was the word “Janathon”. After the events of last week, I had to get back in the saddle. Or watch all my fitness slide down the drain. With my blog and all my blogging buddies running swiftly after it.
I eventually hit the streets at ten pm.
It was wet and yes, I was tired. But I ran three miles anyway, and actually felt more energized when I got home.
- Forget about waiting for dry weather. Embrace the rain.
- Janathon really works as a motivational tool.
- Pythagoras was one cool guy.
