My wife asked me the other day, if I am becoming obsessed with running again. I have gone through phases before where I could not miss a run and if I did, I would be kicking myself for not going. A lot of this had to do with justifying my unhealthy eating for the day or I wasn’t able to go because I did not feel good do to unhealthy eating.
She asked me this question, because I was trying to plan a work outing after work this week since I was not running. I am taking a few days off to rest my knee. Or I would make comments like “Since I am not running tonight…”
I explained to her that this time it is different. When I can’t go running, I miss it. Since I am running without a watch, the pressure is all gone on my runs. I run the three F’s, Freer, Faster and Farther that I could before.
