Two runs in a row - not a good idea

I like running. Yes, it is painful, etc. But there is something about human beings that we were created to move, and I think running is a part of our nature. And it feels like a workout. I like swimming too, but after a swim you are fatigued but clorinated. After a run you feel like you have worked out. Legs wobbly, sweat dripping off of you!

I know one of the liberating, wonderful dreams I occasionally have (while sleeping) is that I am running, everywhere, flawlessly and without effort.

Reality isn't like that! I am old, heavy, and slow. My knees and ankles have seen better days.
Yet I am drawn to run, no matter how poorly I do it.

I ran yesterday. 2,3,4,5,4, with 7 minutes of walking interspersed in the middle. It was a good, sweaty workout.

Today - sore, stiff. Tried to run anyway. Ended up doing a 20 minute mostly walk, some jog.

Two days in a row is not good for me (knees, ankles, legs in general), at least at this time.

Last week

2 runs
lots of baseball....

slogging along

Okay, so that sounds like something rainy, but I think 'slogging' sounds like how it felt today - heavy legs, lethargic forward motion.

But I pushed thru.

2,3,4,5,2 on, 1.5 off each.

Beautifully sunny, 60 degrees
Also, despite the physical effects, a very prayerful run.

I went for a run today. It was chilly outside when I left - about 60. Temp felt good after the runs last week/week before when it was humid and hot even at 6:30am!

I am really having a struggle getting re-motivated to be regular about input and output!

Way behind....

Two weeks ago - 3 runs, 1 swim
Last week - 2 runs, lots of hard yard/house work!

both ankles were hurting Sunday PM, but were fine for the run. A little stiff now as I stay up WAY too late watching the second overtime for the Red Wings.
