It has definitely been one of those days today! I have to admit I was glad to escape the office at the end of the day.
I was due to go out for a run this evening. It took me a lot longer to recover than I would have done 4 months ago, and I had hoped to get out at the weekend, but I was just too sore. Normally I would have griped and whined about going out for a run tonight, but I didn’t give myself the option. Plus I was looking forward to my tea, which motivated me to get out and back as soon as I could.
There were a couple of distraction bunnies that were very welcome, plus some sheep which gave me a passing glance as I lumbered past. It was a gorgeous evening out, and I was glad I went.
The only thing I wasn’t too keen on having to do was quickly diverting into the railway station’s toilets. I am hoping my stomach also remembers what running means sooner rather than later too.
I took a slight diversion back, along a tiny trail next to the train line on the estuary side. My ankle was glad of the softer ground, as it had started griping a bit. I think that is the call to start my yoga practice again (oh the joys of regained inflexibility!).
So having come home in a bit of a grump, having had a headache all day and stomach ache for the majority of the afternoon, I returned from my run with a little bit less weight on my shoulders and a cheerier outlook.
