I would love to say my streak of good runs has continued but it hasn't. For whatever reason I am back to feeling a bit sluggish and awkward again. I ran my first One Big Fat Run this past Sunday and it was horrible. My time was slow and I felt tired.
I just couldn't get into the groove of things. It may have been because they air was thick because of the humidity. It may have been because I ate like crap the day before and did not hydrate well. It may have been because I missed running with the group. I don't know.
What I do know is that this too shall pass. I won't dwell on the bad but will remember the possible. I know what I am capable of accomplishing. I know that I am human and will have my off days and even weeks. But I know there are also those days that I seem to just fly through the air. There are those days that my breathing seems easier and my legs feel lighter.
Those are the days I choose to remember. And no matter what, I always feel like more of an athlete when I decide to push and struggle and complete my task instead of giving up. Amen.
