…I have not been running. In the words of Rocky Balboa, I’ve been a lazy bum!
Paulie: Shut your freakin’ mouth. You been keepin’ me down!
Rocky: Down? You know, you’re like a crazy brother to me, Paulie, you really are. So I’m gonna tell ya something and I want you to listen because I really mean this. You ain’t down. And you ain’t even a loser. You’re just a jealous, lazy bum.
Ok Rocky, I get it but I’m definitely not Paulie. He’s much cooler than I am.
Monday I did some bike-ride as the new phone holder I had ordered from eBay arrived just in the evening so I was excited to give it a try. I am not much of a rider but I can ride for half an hour without dying. Since my right shin was still feeling a bit problematic, I insisted not to run on Monday anyway.
Then came the Tuesday. Again, I din’t go for a run. My shin felt better but I couldn’t spare the time out. I woke up at 5, did some yoga and exercise and left for my class. In the evening, again, I was a lazy bum.
Finally on the wicked Wednesday. I was JUST going to go for a run and taste the wild winter but it started raining drips and drops so I stayed home. I didn’t want myself to catch cold but I know that’s more of an excuse. I’m repeatedly asking myself to listen to my body, but that’s just another excuse now. Shins are now shining with fresh blood (from inside, not from outside).
And today is Thursday where I’m planning to ride bike to go to badminton court, play a couple of shots (and a couple more) and ride back home. I’d be feeling good about it.
I know what is right today and I know what to do. I’ll tell myself once again that it’s never too late to do the right thing and I’ll do it. I’ll be a stronger and better person today, not tomorrow. Because today is all I have 🙂
