Another sunny run...

No Mr Smooth this morning..just me n my music...& this beautiful morning...

My new 10/15 minute warm up worked again...after 4.5k, when I was ready to run back towards the car...my legs were running in the other direction...they made me run into my thoughts...I wasn’t thinking about what I was doing, I was thinking of the things I’ve done in my life...huh...nothing exciting but I’m here, I’m alive...I’m thinking about my Mum, gosh I miss her so much....I’m thinking about my childhood, yikes...not good, until my Dad left.....I’m thinking about my first job...with a smile...I’m thinking about my first car..couldn’t wait...I’m thinking about my wedding..beautiful day...I’m thinking about having my children...nothing compares to that...

Running has taken me on a journey... the weeks it took me to complete C25k & every time I’m out there, I’m on a journey...with my legs making me run into my thoughts....

One of my favourite things about running is getting lost in my thoughts. It is such a peaceful time for me. I've missed several turns while running and have had to replan my route on the fly which is ok too 🙂

It’s funny isn’t it?!! I wasn’t planning the run this morning...I just ran!

And it sounds perfect 😁. The impromptu runs can often be the best. I'm glad to hear you're getting your groove back

It was lovely wasn't it.. I thought of you whilst I was out there running too!

It sounds like a great run.. .. and what a great distance too and with such happy, happy thoughts...

I am doing the opposite in some ways now.... running with, ( gulp) discipline in my runs... ( Speed podcast) trying to get back up to 10K... it was hard this morning.. during the slow intervals I wanted to run faster.. ( yes me )... I had to be every sensible.

Go you.. very well done:)

Did you really think of me??? Now I know I’m a runner if I’m in Oldfloss’s thoughts xxx

It's great when running can be 'me' time, clear your head from the daily grind, reflect on things and gain perspective. I don't often get runs like that but they are lovely when they come along. So glad you are having a better time of it when you are out - long may it continue! :)

What a lovely post for a glorious morning 😊

What a lovely post, what a lovely run.

You've made me all emotional. Nuff said. Xx

Ah lovely post!! Yeah I like to think over my time too ...my life has been pretty uneventful really, 2 weddings 3 lovely young adults to show for it...all of them doing well in their own things...only 1 left at Home , adjusting gradually still miss having him around...but onwards and upwards, daughter gets married in 5 months so that is so exciting, can’t wait then in a few years god willing...next chapter and I will be nana!! So glad your mojo had returned 😊😊

ah what a lovely post. I have to agree that I am begining to find running very relaxing simply because of the time to think. Great metaphor "Running into your thoughts"
