Now that I’m running again, I’ve got to get back into the routine of being a runner. 4:45 a.m. wakeup calls. Purchase extra detergent to wash all the towels I’ll mess up. Shoe check. And, of course, spend extra time stretching so I don’t re-injure myself.
Of course, when I was laid up, I did none of that stuff. I didnt stretch. I didnt worry if I had clean shorts to wear. I didn’t fret about what time I ate dinner. And I certainly didnt fret about early-morning weather forecasts.
In fact, what I did in those 30-something days of activity was:
Drank lots of wine.
Gained lots of weight (154 pounds before injury, 164 now)
Stayed up past midnight often.
Slept a lot.
Played lots of Words with Friends over breakfast (which meant lots of cheating. Thank you, Scrabble Word Finder. My words with friend username, btw, is 5ksandcabernets.)
Did I say drank lots of wine? Oh, I did say that.
I’ll probably still drink a lot, and cheat (on Scrabble) a lot. But its time to get this bod back in shape.
