I'm not an addict (maybe that's a lie) (Read 1473 times)

    I tried to quit after I first started 'cause I knew it was stupid and wrong, but I couldn't - not even with family trying to help me.  And just a 3K got me hooked (friends talked me into trying "just one").  But now it's even worse.  I try to justify it by telling myself there are other things that I do more - like eating, sleeping, and working - so I'll worry about running after I've stopped those other bad habits.  Wink  

     Running with friends on the weekend is one thing.  But when you find yourself running alone on a Tuesday morning and showing up late for work, it's time to seek help.

      I can quit any time I want! I just don't want to....

          What if you just tell your boss....Look, this is what I am doing, and your just going to have to get over it?

          Not that I am fast but--

          Okay, here we go. Focus. Speed. I am speed. One winner, forty-two losers. I eat losers for breakfast. Breakfast? Maybe I should have had breakfast? Brekkie could be good for me. No, no, no, focus. Speed. Faster than fast, quicker than quick. I am Lightning.” — Lightning McQueen

            Listen, I'm addicted to running, as well as biking, swimming and now rock climbing.  I don't think there is anything wrong with this.  Some people have addictive personalities and I am certainly one.  So, I could either be addicted to junk food and couch surfing (maybe even worse things) or I could be addicted to an active lifestyle.  I choose the latter!

             

            +1 on the rock climbing.  I don't get into biking or swimming, but it's spiraled to the point of building a bouldering cave in my garage...

Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem."

              Midnight. Can not sleep. Knee slightly swollen. I should go run anyway. Promised myself I would rest the knee. Never should have made that promise. It has been two days. That is enough time. RIGHT?

               

              PS: 37 miles for the month. Need 44 miles to reach 2000 miles for the year. What is a little swollen knee and pain to reach the bass ring. I am not an addicted.

               

              12/22/11  Rest is over-rated.  7 AM 4.8 mile walk.

              Run until the trail runs out.

                We can quit any time we want to...

                 

                I say, looking up races and group runs for the next few weeks.
