tiredness in my bones

They creak and shake, echoing with love

For a journey through the forest greens,

Along the busy roads from town,

But it brings a fear and hate,

My body tiring of the impact on the joints,

And yet, as I cross the finish line,

It’s just a feeling of content

That wraps a blanket round my soul.

I ran a really long way for a training run today. I dread the thought of going out for these runs but when I get going I quite enjoy the pain. And then, when I get home, that feeling of elation is just enough to make me fall in love with running again. Almost enough to make me consider signing up for another 100 miler….

Much Love

    There is something exhilarating, isn’t there, about the feeling you get when you’ve had a full-on exercise session, whether it’s a workout at the gym or a training run or something else. You feel those endorphins going, and that makes it all worth the fatigue.
