Dubious Motives

15 June 2011

I got up and ran 4 miles this morning, and I’m not proud of myself.

There was no need to go out less than 12 hours after I got back from a hard session at the gym. I have plenty of opportunities coming up this week to run, the weather wasn’t particularly nice and I hadn’t had enough sleep. My muscles ached throughout and I don’t feel better for having run today, I just feel unnecessarily exhausted.

When I examine my motives for running today, I don’t like what I see. I went  so that I could eat more cakes and drink more booze. I went because I had put on a kilo when I weighed myself at the gym last night and I could be faster if I were thinner.  I don’t need to be thinner, I am fine as I am (repeat until I believe it).

    I run to be thinner and drink more beer, which just equates to not getting any fatter (if I’m lucky). Enjoy the good things in life, no guilt 🙂 You’ll burn ’em off later.
