What a great start for my day off. I feel so productive already. I ran 5.39 miles this morning. That was long for me. I sure got a long way to go, but I feel good. I was actually awaken with a nose that I couldn’t breath from. Surprisingly I slept good last night. I picked up some kind of crud from someone or something around here. I am the type of person who will suffer, because I refuse to take any medication. I think I would feel worse if I took something. It’s not so bad, because I am use to rolling like that.
Since I forgot to turn my 10 alarms settings off on my phone (I am exaggerating, it is 5 alarm settings, really) I was awaken at 6 am. Since I couldn’t breath, I had to get up and try to blow my nose. So I said to self “Your lungs will feel better if you go for your run this morning.” And guess what? I did.
The weather was perfect. I am finished now and it is 9 am. It is 70° C right now. So it was a bit cooler when I ran. It felt good, although I did not run at all last week. My problem is getting started. If I don’t start, I don’t finish. My run weeks start on Friday, so this was a good start. Sorry for talking circles. Speaking of circles my route got a bit bigger. I did not run in tiny loops today. I ran outside (Yeah!), I ran as wide as I could on the camp while doing some switch backs, but that made the run a bit more enjoyable.
I got Miguel to take some pictures of me. He has to leave in a couple of days to go back to his permanent site in Bagram. I sure hate to see him go. I always have fun with Miguel. Any who, my stomach is growling something fierce and I am afraid it is in danger of turning on itself (like a zombie stomach). I am all about the zombies right now. So it is time to forage for food. You know since I ran all that way, I don’t intend to mess up my calorie burn.
After all, I am looking good these days. That is what I tell myself so I will be motivated to keep moving.
