So…I had a little confusion on my run this weekend.
See, I’m on a strict regimen from my physical therapist: I’m supposed to run every other minute for 30 minutes every other day.
But, I decided to run on some fun trails this weekend. I took Ada the Dog with me to Point Defiance Park.I get lost pretty much every time that I go to Point Defiance Park, and this weekend was not exception.
Sooo, because I got lost, my 30 minute run turned into a 40 minute run….and during the last 15 minutes or so, I ran two minutes and then walked one minute. (I was running late because of the accidental detour, so had to hurry).
And guess what?
It felt so good.
So freaking good.
I then realized how I got injured in the first place.
Guys, it’s not that runners are stupid. It’s that our brains our so elated with happy-run feelings that we can barely sense pain while we’re in our state of running ecstasy. See? It’s not our fault.
Do you get running ecstasy? Do you think my theory about why runners get injured is correct?
