About a month ago I told everyone I knew, including my readers, that I was running a Halloween 5K. The very next day I went out and ran 2 miles. The day after that I ran another 2 miles.
Then my back was bothering me, so I stopped running and I did nothing. I didn’t walk, or bike or go to an exercise class. Because damn it all, change is hard.
I woke up this morning and realized that next Saturday was the 5k. A big part of me wanted to just call it off. Hey, I didn’t train–can’t do it.
I got dressed in my running gear anyways. You know what a great running plan is? Have your husband drop you off 2 miles from your destination. We were off to Quinn’s soccer game and this is exactly what Ross did. I ran the remaining 2 miles and met them at the game.
The whole point of the 5k wasn’t to do the 5k–it was the work that went into getting ready for the 5k. I cannot change the past, I can only move forward. One week of running is better then none, right?
