Karate moves.

Good morning!

I’m currently at my desk at work icing my leg. This is so not as easy as it sounds.

I can only stand (tall teller desk) so my leg is up on my chair and I look like “we’re in the middle of a karate movie on freeze frame” according to my cop of the day.  My leg is straight out beside me.

It’s super comfortable.

Not.

But I figure icing must happen and after yoga this morning it announced itself in a low dull ache. 

It feels much better now…icing is my friend.

I could really use a cheeseburger though. It’s feeling cheeseburger day.

You often have to override a nagging sense of futility, lacing up your shoes, telling yourself that no matter how unlikely it seems right now, after you finish you will be glad you went. It's only afterward that it makes sense, although even then it's hard to rationalize why. You just feel right. After a run, you feel at one with the world, as though some unspecified, innate need has been fulfilled."

“Running is tough. You will get tired. You will develop aches and pains. You probably won’t experience the vaunted but mostly mystical ‘runner’s high.’ But none of these are sufficient reasons to quit your training program. In fact, virtually no reason is sufficient. You’ll miss days, you’ll catch a cold, you’ll have a long plane flight, your father will be hospitalized, and so on. Life is full of events we can’t control, and these events will temporarily derail you from your best-laid plans. But don’t quit. Get back on track as soon as you can. The lost time won’t hurt you. Only quitting can do that.”

-Amby Burfoot, Runner’s World Complete Book of Beginning Running

    yeah…like Fatburger. Or Smashburgers. Sigh. My days of those burgers are gone. I think I’ll make burgers tonight.
