pushes Garmin button. 3-2-1-run.Ugh. This is no good. Get yourself in the right headspace, Jana. That’s better. This will be an easy 5-7 miles. Maybe I’ll do 8. Or maybe just 5. We’ll see. Mile 1. Please let my joints loosen up. Did I remember my meds? I know I took them. Mile 2. Did I really take my meds? Why do I feel like I forgot how to run? My legs aren’t working right. One of my legs feels longer than the other. Mile 3. Do I look like I’m shuffling? Because I feel like I’m shuffling. Or maybe I’m limping. Why am I limping. Mile 4. This is ok. Much better. I’m in my groove. Will finish strong. Mile 4.5. Sweet goodness, this is horrible. Seriously, why are my legs not working? Do I need to see a doctor about my legs obviously being different lengths? What if they tell me not to run anymore. I love it. GAH I HATE THIS. Mile 4.75 There’s my groove again. YAY! Wait, what? It’s over? That was a HORRIBLE run. What the hell happened?
You know what happened? I finished 5 miles.
Five horrible, no good, very bad miles, but 5 miles nonetheless.
