I was so hungry for a run this morning, I could taste it.

It’s been a busy week. Between hosting an exchange student and running around to various appointments, meetings, etc., I haven’t been able to run since Monday. I missed it.

On Monday I ran six miles and was rather thrilled with myself. This morning I wanted to run another six, but after the first mile I wasn’t sure I could make two, let alone six. My knees and shins were hurting.

I pushed through, though. I wasn’t satisfied with one or two miles. I kept pushing all the way to five. It felt good, but bad all at the same time. I may regret pushing so hard if my muscles seize up tomorrow.

I never really know… is it wise to push through pain, or better to rest until it’s better?
