I didn’t do anything yesterday.
There you go I’ve said it, thats like an alcoholic standing up and saying I didn’t have a drink yesterday. I guess some people think I’m obsessive, I can see why they think that. I get moody if I don’t exercise, I feel guilty if I don’t exercise, and I’m a total pain in the arse if I’m injured – just ask Em.
An obsession or an addiction is something that you can’t do with out, so I suppose I am in the eyes of the dictionary writers. Even when I’m not training I’m thinking about it. I made a 120 mile round trip last night to see my dad in hospital ( he’s fine ) but all the time in the car I was thinking about cycle routes and running routes, as well as singing along to the Cure ( used to hate them but Em bought their greatest hits cd and its actually quite good ) and then some cheesy pop stuff.
I formulated plans to get up and go running this morning at 6am, but it didn’t happen. I’ll go after work tonight, have to be a quick one though as I’m out tonight at a running club dinner…….
So the moral of the story is in our addictive little world, whilst those around us probably see us as obsessive we know we are dedicated…….most of the time.
