My Absolutely Fantastic Morning Run Has Ruined My Day! (Read 263 times)


The Irreverent Reverand

    Have you ever had such a great morning run - for me it was my longest YTD, 15.7 miles, 10 of which were along the Mighty Mississippi, at a good pace and I felt fantastic - that for the rest of the day you're just daydreaming about your next run, your next race, and your pacing, diet, and other running details? I have serious work to do today, and while running usually energizes me and gets me going, sometimes - like today - it produces such a rush that it gets in the way of what I should be doing (like writing Sunday's sermon!). 

     

    Grrr. Very grateful for the wonderful run, but I really wish that my brain and body could shift back to work mode!

     

    Have you ever had this experience?

    Goals for 2014:

    Sub-3:30 marathon; run for a year free from major injuries or interruptions

    PRs: 3:27 marathon; 1:41 half; 45:07 10K; 23:26 5K; 6:02 mile; <12 parsecs Kessel Run

      Oh, yeah.  I get it, especially with some beautiful spring weather beginning to tease.

      Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

        I see you even previewed part of the Twin Cities Marathon route this morning. I ran Harriet, Calhoun and Lake of the Isles last night for 13.1, however it was not one of those effortless days for me. Good luck on your TCM training. I just registered as well.

          Spring (run) fever! BTDT.

            Ooh, I know those places, even though I don't live there.

              You should somehow incorporate the running "rush" into your sermon.

               

              Can I get an amen?!

                Perhaps you can tell your parishoners that Sunday services will be delayed until Monday.  If you explain why, I'm sure they'll understand !  ;-)

                Or, if you have subordinates at your church...have one of them write the sermon for you!

                There is only one acceptable pace...all out suicide...

                ...and today is a good day to die!

                  All I do is think and talk about running.  All of my stories have running metaphors or comparitives. None of my friends or family  run so they get sick of me.  Not sure if it has ruined my life YET but there are days when I need to think about other things I guess.... But in the meantime I will stick to being a running junkie !! Approve
