Working On Running

I hate running, I have always hated running even as a kid, I disliked doing it. At Crossfit It was programmed way too often in my opinion. I wasn’t paying to be told to go play in traffic. You had to either cross a busy road, which of course with my vision problems I’m going to err on the caution side of things. For 100 to 200 meters it was run back and forth in the shopping center’s parking lot and people tend not to pay attention to what the fuck they’re doing while driving in parking lots, so I never felt safe doing that.

Here at home, I can run in the alley. There’s hardly any traffic back there. It can be hours between seeing cars driving past but of course whenever I’m out there is one driving down the alley and usually going slower than a snail, so I wait for them and lose time.

It’s definitely not one of those things I’ll ever truly enjoy, but I do feel it is a useful addition to the other things I do for general health and fitness.
