I meant to go on a run this morning but I'm going to be running a lot this afternoon and especially Friday afternoon.
Too much (soccer) running has slowed my (distance) running. Ugh. Now, I don't think I necessarily can't handle it. I have gone on runs of 3.25 miles on days I had games and found that I was pretty mobile and active during the games so I think the running helps enhance my running.
But running takes time, time that I need for another type of running. I can't really take up time in the afternoon for (soccer) running AND time in the morning for (distance) running when I need to fit in some time for (errand) running. In short, I run so I can't run because then I won't be able to run.
Also, there are those little knocks I take that could become a bigger deal. I'm carrying a tender ankle right now. It doesn't hurt a whole lot, isn't really more than just a slight discomfort, but I'm worried about it. If I take a wrong step, it could go from an uncomfortable pain to knocking me out of commission for a week or two. And since I already have to run (soccer) I decided to scrap my planned 4-mile run for Thursday. Sad.
Now, I don't want to go too long without (distance) running and in fact I may incorporate another type of run (interval) on Friday since I will have less (errand) running to do then.
So then, it would be... I need to run so can't really run but since I don't need to run I might try a run.
Properly confused? Well then, let me try another run. Here I go running from my computer.
