Today was the first time I did an outside running WOD since last fall. I really did much better with it than I expected to do.
Anyone who knows me knows of my strong dislike of running. Being visually impaired really puts a damper on any joy I would get from it. This year, for Halloween, I decided to have a little fun with it.
I don’t really make it a secret that I am not a fan of running but I know it’s good for me to at least do some of it. Today I intended to row a 10k but that wasn’t happening with my hands being a bit bitched up from all of the grippy stuff yesterday. I still managed about 3500k but blisters on my hand wouldn’t be beneficial to me so I stopped there for the day.
It Never Fails When I'm Doing A Running WOD, Everyone Needs To Drive In The Alley When It's Time To Run
It’s one of those annoying things to me but there seems to always be people driving down the alley. I’m not complain about them driving there in any way because they have as much right to be there as me. It’s just the timing sucks. It goes hours between cars any other part of the day but whenever I am out there they appear like magic. It always slows me down as I am extra cautious when there are cars around since so many people are off in their own little world once they get behind the wheels.
Even though I loathe running, I have been working on improving it. I have hated to run ever since I was a small child.
