Sometimes being a grownup sucks

awkwardness, incapacitated
I was planning on going running this afternoon, but my left shin is a little sore. Not in a terribly horribly injured way, but sore enough that running on it doesn't seem like a good idea. I think I'll go to the gym and bike instead. I should be feeling virtuous and responsible for listening to my body and taking good care of it, but mostly I'm feeling grumpy about not getting to run.

I just told a colleague that I couldn't possibly do the thing he was asking me to do and still meet my other work commitments, so he's going to try to do it himself instead. I should be feeling virtuous and responsible for being realistic about my workload and setting clear boundaries, but mostly I'm feeling guilty about not doing something that under any other circumstances I would do.

However, my inner adult is now telling me that I should eat some lunch now because I won't be productive when I'm hungry and my inner child thinks that there is probably Tasty Soup, so at least I have achieved inner harmony on one point.

I found that I had to take up yoga in order to run reliably twice a week - otherwise there's just too much pain involved. Soup sounds good though...Diana

Ironically, I think I walloped my shin not by running, but while doing some leg exercises that are supposed to help prevent injury from running. Though I'm sure the stresses of running contributed.

This may prove to be the impetus that I need to get back into yoga, though!
