Good Enough

This morning was my first run in almost a week.

I hadn't run since last Thursday, that crappy run I had before I was struck down by the God of Vomit and Mud Butt, and to be honest, I really wasn't in the mood to run this morning, but I figured I needed to get back to it. So I got up at 5 am and ran 2 miles. Usually I don't run anything shorter than 3 miles, but like I said, I really was in no mood, so I figured 2 miles were "good enough."

As expected, those 2 miles were a little slow (and it didn't help that it is 91% humidity out there right now), but they did feel good toward the end, and ultimately, they served their purpose for simply getting me out there.

But, I hear Norah grunting and stirring now, so I'd best be off to tend to the babe. Enjoy your hump day, everyone!

Yay... sometimes even a short run is all you need to kickstart things. Hope you're feeling better!

Two is better than none! We're getting into our pre-winter weather, so I would love some heat.

good enough is right! :) it's funny to hear you talk about the humidity.

I ran two miles yesterday and it almost felt like a waste of time...but 2 miles is much better than 0 miles!

The Mud Butt is karma for you wishing I'd soil myself during my burrito run.

Glad to hear you're feeling better, though.

Getting out there is the hardest part!

Good Job!

Definitely better than nothing. Good job getting out there.

it's hard to imagine 91% humidity right now; we're hovering around freezing.

AnthonyP said...

Way to get back out there. One step at a time

Heather said...

91% humidity? Ugh. Great job getting out there. It's always hard after you've been sick and miserable. Glad you're feeling better!

I don't think I could run 2 feet in 91% humidity let alone 2 miles. I'm impressed!

RunningLaur said...

2 miles is better than no miles, especially at 5 am!

Wes said...

I always slow way down and just run walk when I'm not feelin it. Ya know? Then the endorphins kick in and its all good :-)

MCM Mama said...

Something is better than nothing... I'm hoping to feel up to a mile or two tomorrow.

(Funny, my word verification is "depressn" which is how I'm feeling about not running LOL)

Carolina John said...

at least you got a few miles in. glad you're feeling better!

Jess said...

Nice job getting out there and getting something done even though you weren't feeling it!

Crystal said...

today was my first day back running-great minds think alike or it could just be our bodies finally cooperating with us.

Good job doing it when you don't really feel into it. Doing something is always better than nothing. Gald your healthy again.
