I miss running
I’ve talked about this a few times and posted some of the pictures OneDrive shows me every day. Photos taken on the same day, week or month in previous years. It always gives me a “throwback” and I think about the situation at the time I took the photo.
A lot of photos were taken on runs. I really liked running through nature, no people around me, just me running, listening to music and sometimes taking a picture of the beautiful nature.
I miss that. Just being by myself, not thinking too much, physically exhausting myself, breathing fresh air.
Although I really like my new habit of doing bodyweight training three times a week, it’s still not the same feeling. I push myself to new limits and feel the adrenaline. But it’s inside, it doesn’t last as long. Sure, it’s also a good thing because it reduces my excuses for not training. And most of the workouts are more intense than running.
What keeps me from running again? A few years ago, I think it was 2020, I tried to start running again just to feel my knee pain again. What I did 5 or 6 years ago, running every day, was just too much. I don’t want to get that feeling again.
Maybe, especially since it’s getting warmer outside, I should try to train outside. I just need to find a place where I can do my pushups, burpees, sit-ups, and other exercises without too many people watching. One of the two cities I live in has outdoor exercise facilities, but unfortunately they are on the other side of town and usually pretty crowded.
