I hate running. From the way my legs feel like lead at the start, to 5minutes in when my calf muscles try to stop me with pain, or 20 minutes in when I start to feel sick, my body tries to make me quit.

So I run in empty fields and just keep going. After a few more minutes my calf muscles give up trying to make me stop. The wave of nausea passes too. The podcast tells me I'm in the last minute of my run. Victory!

Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings; by Saturday I'm thinking, 'oh good, I get to run tomorrow'.

Because the pain of running is so much better than the ache in my hips and back from sitting still, because it is making me stronger, because moving feels like freedom, I run.
