Today and yesterday were the first two days in a row that I did not run since the end of May. Yesterday, I got home from work a little bit later and had a lot to do around the house. It was nice getting everything done.
Today, I skipped my run to allow my wife to have a nice evening in the city. She has been home with the kids the whole summer and earned a nice night. I was planning on going running, but made a last minute decision to skip it, so she can go out.
She always gives me time to get out there and encourages me on the nights when I do not feel like it. It was nice that she got to have a relaxing evening. Remember, running is part of your life, not your life.
