As a PE teacher, besides the importance of running to my life, overall fitness is a constant and a key. Today, I am a little under the weather. I'm not sure what it's about or what I have or how long I will have it, but running was not happening today. However, it is beautiful outside and I wanted to get some sun and not sit and dwell on how I feel. I was able to get out and walk 3 miles this afternoon. Although, I do't feel great and I don't physically feel better from the walk, mentally I feel satisfied.
I think it's important to satisfy yourself when you can and when things don't go exactly the way you want. I had planned to run 6 miles today and continue my week building miles. I knew this morning that it wasn't happening. I didn't want to drop everything though, so I got outside and walked.
Tomorrow is a new day, hopefully a running day, or maybe another walking day.
