Due to the pain in my neck, I skipped running yesterday which made me feel a little out of sorts. Running does funny things to you. When you're on a roll, you would find any excuse to go for a run.
Cool weather is perfect for running. Rainy days are perfect too. We run out the moment the rain stops to enjoy the crisp fresh air. Overcast days are also great. We try to complete our run before the thunderstorm rolls in. Heck, even sunny days are good. At least we get a tan while running. It's good if you can start the day with a run. A relaxing run before bedtime is even better. Anytime is a good time.
Then again, a runner can get into a rut and lose the passion for running sometimes. We have off days too. We start to skip one session. Then another, and another. We can always find an excuse not to run. The weather's too hot. Too wet. Too muggy. Too late. Too early. Too busy. Too lazy.
If we're lucky, someone comes around and kick our butt. We start out again with difficulty and rediscover the passion. Then we wonder why we had even stopped in the first place.
Believe me, it always feels good after a run.
