I was feeling rather sluggish this afternoon when I got home from class, and still wasn't feeling too enthused about an evening run when the time came around. I knew that I felt obligated to run, but I just plain didn't feel like going -- so I was kinda bitching and moaning (to myself) as I started to get out my running clothes...but then, I was literally saved by the bell!
Erin called. She had just gotten done at the prego doctor, and she was near Chipotle -- did I want to join her for a burrito?
Does anyone say "no" to a Chipotle burrito? If they do, I don't want to know them.
Of course, I said yes and stuffed my running clothes back in the drawer. Granted, eating a 1,200 calorie burrito instead of getting out there for a run may not be the best choice in terms of running; however, I believe in two things:
1. Sometimes, it's okay to skip a run. I try not to skip too many, so this makes the occasional missed run alright.
2. It's always better to make people, not running, a priority in life. I think it is just as healthy for me to enjoy a relaxing dinner and some laughs with my friend as it is to get a run in.
So, I missed my run today. Which is coolio -- would've been "junk miles" to me anyway since I would just be running to run -- and tomorrow I'll get my scheduled run in and I don't think the legs will mind the extra day of rest.
