Running the stress off

It’s a well known fact that exercise makes us feel good – increasing seratonin to the brain. Well I sure needed it today. I had a little accident with the car! Oh yes I didn’t tell you, I passed my driving test and am officially a green P plater now!

Anyway I kind of misjudged the cars angle when coming out of the garage and i scratched a fair bit of the wheel bonnet thingy (not very technical!) and it’s now going to cost me $670! …..oops

So when I got home I was a little stressed thinking about it and decided that I would push myself to run and run off the stress. I also didn’t have a great session at the gym yesterday and my knee hurt so needed to prove to myself I was ok.

So I ran just under 8k outside and it was quite an undulating course, and you know what – I felt great. All my stress disappeared, I felt good because I ran well too – not super fast but comfortably and no knee pain. I felt strong running up the hills and felt happy just running and not feeling restricted in the gym.

I got home, sorted dinner out, and kissed my husbands butt a bit when he got home – but as it happens I didn’t need to as he was fine about the car and just said – try not to do it again! What an awesome husband I have – maybe he has been secretly running off the stress too!

  1. So now we know the secret to your future success, car crash on the way to your next race. By the way I do concure with your view on Ash, I think it would take more than a kissed butt to be that chilled if someone crashed my car.
