The revelations just keep on coming.....

My revelations during yesterdays run really freed up a lot of things in my head.  As I said, I tend to look for the magic bullet and as a result I get hung up on what other people say I should and shouldn't do. For the last few months I have been attempting my workouts with the thought in my head that I can not run 2 days in a row.  So I would wake up and really feel like running but I wouldn't because either I ran the day before or I'm supposed to run the following day.  So I would not do what I wanted to do and I would force myself to do something I didn't feel like or, more likely, end up doing nothing at all.  I get it, I'm not supposed to run 2 days in a row because my body needs time to rest and rebuild, blah, blah, blah.  I would buy that nonsense if I was running 10 miles or running really fast.  I'm not.  I'm only running about 3 miles and I'm running pretty slow.  I dragged myself on the run from hell yesterday and felt like crap the entire time.  But I woke up this morning and felt like running again.  My initial reaction was to say that I ran yesterday so I can't run today.  And then I said, according to who?  I felt great, I had no aches or pains, and I felt like running.  What better reasons do I need?  So I ran.  And I rocked it.  And I feel awesome.  And I've decided that I'm going to run whenever I feel like it.  I'm going to workout every morning and if I feel like running two, three, four days in a row, I will.  Who really cares what those other people say!!!  I may even get myself some custom water bottles that say I will run when I want to. So there!!!!
