You ever feel like that? Today was suppose to be my "off" day. But yesterday I ate bad BBQ for lunch and felt bad all evening. So I switched my days. Got home today after a busy day at work and was beat. So tired I tried to lay down and take a power nap. Didn't work very well. I was just NOT motivated to run. Plus it is windy and hot and humid and etc. I could think of so many excuses not to get my butt out there. But I put my running clothes on and headed out. I haven't missed a run in three weeks. This was not going to be the first just because I didn't "feel" like it.
I took a different route on my blacktop today. For some reason, I've never ran the opposite way. I think the biggest reason is there are residences that way and I'm not sure about dogs. But today was the day to find out. Only saw one dog at a cattle/trucking place. Dog didn't care one bit that I was running by. Hardly raised his head to acknowledge me. That makes me happy.
I came across a skunk on my trek. I didn't ever see it but I could smell it. I just told it to stay where it was and I would stay where I was. No issues there. Almost back to the truck, I encountered another critter. A SNAKE! Luckily, it was just a lil green grass snake, about 2 foot long. It slithered so quickly across the road in front of me that I couldn't even get a picture.
But all in all, a run can't be that bad if it ends like this...
Today's run: 25 min
