I got up really early to run this morning, and I'm very proud of myself. W2R2 down. I'm feeling good about R3 on Saturday.
As you may have gathered from my accent ;), I'm from the southern US. There's a belief that our weather is always nice here, but y'all...it was cold this morning. Luckily??? for me I got a wake up call that forced me out of bed at 4:30 this morning. UGH. I decided to head outside at 5:00 since I was already up. The stars were beautiful. The dawn was amazing. Dare I say I got a runner's high?
A girl could get used to this.
The best thing about being up this early was the quiet. I was able to get some thinking done while I was outside. I've been very anxious lately. Work has been rough. Home has been challenging. I have to break my run down mentally. I can't think of the entire run all at once or it seems far too hard. I just concentrate on one step at a time. I really need to do that in my life outside of sneakers. Today, I will concentrate on one step, one task, one person at a time. If someone has to wait, so be it. They'll live. If a task takes longer than expected, so be it. It will be finished and finished well. Being goal oriented is great, but sometimes you really have to pull back from the big picture and look at the small details.
I hope you all can find some clarity today.
