My knees hurt, but I'm not surprised.
But I don't want to be heavier, and I don't want my runs getting harder instead of easier.
So I have to make a decision.
I can decide to eat like a pig, get even fatter, and give up running.
Or I can stop using food as a reward for working twelve hour days and much of the weekend, and instead take pride in running and eating healthy.
And what even decision I make, I need to be man enough to (in the words of Tom Petty) stand my ground on eating healthy and stop backing down and eating junk food and drinking beer.
And that's what was on my mind during this morning's run.
Monday's score: Shawn 1, Couch 0.
