|A little color beside the trail|
"Hey, feel that twinge behind that knee? That wasn't there yesterday. And that chronically achy spot in that left foot hasn't gone away yet either. Maybe we better take another day off. It'll do us good, right?"
And then I noticed something else: I didn't want to go out and run. The day was gray to match my mood and the sky was threatening rain. I didn't really have a plan for where I was going to run, I didn't feel like getting wet, and I was sick of all of the places I've been running so much lately. Another trot down the Erie Canal trail? Meh. And the neighborhood loop? Yuck! I couldn't even work up any enthusiasm to go out to one of the local trails.
This was bad.
