I did mow the lawn (in March!) and it was a bit tough (always do that "last mow" in the fall or else doing it the first time in spring will be a big chore - the back yard was like a prairie), so I felt like I got some sort of workout. My legs have been a bit tight since the half marathon last week and I figure that running tomorrow would be better than going out today, so that's the plan.
It's a bit funny that I expect to feel guilty when I don't run and I know many others who feel the same way. I suppose there is a comfort to keeping a schedule, but the truth is, missing or rescheduling a run is not that big of a deal. So, instead of running, I decided to.... watch movies about running.
I watched most of "Spirit of the Marathon" for the second time. If you don't "get" the whole running thing, and especially if you do, I would recommend this documentary film. It follows six runners, two pro and four amateurs, through their training and thoughts leading up to the Chicago Marathon. Their emotions really shine through and I found myself being able to relate in many ways to all of them. It is available on Netflix.
I didn't run today, but never fear, I'm still sufficiently obsessed.
