Haha, not that kind of running away 🙂 Although I can’t say I don’t think about it once in awhile. Not forever, or anything. Just for a little while. And I’ll even admit to making an extra stop once while on an errand just to delay going back to the stress that was waiting. Yeah, a little escape and some retail therapy at the dollar store never hurt anyone, lol.
I’m talking about getting out and doing the closest thing I can to a sprint. I’ve been to the doctor today to follow up on the fatigue (it’s back with a vengence) and a few other minor things. While I was there, I asked him about running. I have a herniated disc in my back, as well as a ruptured disc. So, I have to be careful. The doctor said as long as I’m up to it, to give it a try.
I have a recumbent bike. It’s exercise and while it leaves me a little more tired than when I started, it’s not something I can’t successfully engage in. So, why go running? I think exercise is a lot like food. Just like our bodies need a varied diet to gain all the important nutrients, I think we need to participate in a variety of exercises too. I mean, would you want to only eat mashed potatoes for the rest of your days? Sometimes, sitting in the corner racking up digital miles is just what you were craving. But sometimes, a little sprint in the crisp, fall air sounds like a delightful treat.
So, if you happen to see a gal out sprinting at turtle speed, no laughing! 😉 Wishing you all a great day!
