The Son of the Voice in My Head

I was planning to take Mom to lunch today after she rescheduled yesterday.  So I got to the gym at work early figuring on running some miles after the weights to make up for missing the lunch run.

And that's what I did.  Weights first (ugh), then 6 miles on a beautiful morning.  Cool temps with the sun coming up made for a nice run.

I called Mom at 11 to check on her and she begged off again.  Just not feeling like going out today, she said.  No problem, I told her, we'll try again next week.

Meanwhile, even as I 'm telling her that, the voice in my head pipes up with "Hey, now I can go for a run!".  This must be a different voice than the one that wants to cut the hill repeats short.

So I sit there and ponder the state of things.  I could go for another run.  But that's probably not the smartest thing to do.  I'd hate to mess up the weekend trail running by overdoing it today.  Such a nice day though.

I compromised by taking a walk around the lake.

And that seemed to make everybody happy.

  1. I find it amusing that Grandma doesn't get quote marks, but THE VOICE does.


    I'm so looking forward to running with you Sunday!
