I haven’t run since Friday. I’m giving my body some time to recover, and I’ve decided that it’s better to miss a week of training and to recover than to make my injury worse.
So, since I am a triathlete, I decided to go to the pool for a swim. I searched for parking and finally got there, only to find a sign on the door: CLOSED FOR MAINTENANCE UNTIL OCTOBER 16.
You’d think that I’d go home and go for a bike ride instead. You’d be wrong because my bike is broken at the moment and my back up bike was stolen. Thanks a lot, DC.
So today I decided to pack my running clothes and try to go for a light jog after work. I figured the worst that could happen would be that I end up going for a walk instead of a jog. At least walking is moving. Then I got to work and saw the weather report: severe thunderstorms all afternoon. Great. Awesome. Fantastic.
Sometimes the universe is conspiring against you.
