Today I did something I haven’t done in a while, I went for a run. In the past year I’ve put off running because of lifting weights and trying to gain weight. Running (at least long distances) seemed to have the opposite effect for what I’m trying to achieve.
Anyways, I decided to just get outside and go running, and I’m glad I did! The distance wasn’t far, and I only ran for a half hour, but it felt great. Now that I’m back I have that feeling of restfulness, my body feels like it’s expended energy and can relax. It’s an addicting feeling. Unfortunately I don’t get that when I lift weights. Running comes so naturally!
