It’s Hard To Be Good
This morning was just beautiful when I was out running with Shana - clear blue sky, sun just over the horizon, the tide high & sea flat.
In fact, the sea looked rather too good. Too tempting. As we ran past the harbour, I could see that the recent calm weather had really done wonders for the clarity of the water, and you could see all the way to the bottom even quite a way out.
It was so tempting to slip my wetsuit on and go for a swim after the run. An easy half mile or so would be, well, easy! But then I remembered that I’m supposed to be resting my shoulder properly - taking a whole month off from any real swimming. And I knew that even if I set off easy, the pace would pick up - especially if I headed off out of the harbour and around the fishing boats moored about 100 yards out. I could see that the tide was already starting to go out, and I’d end up swimming back in against the current.
Oh, it’s hard being disciplined sometimes!
