Haven't posted in ages and had a pretty shocking month since my graduation to be honest. I had a little ankle injury but managed a run last Sunday which was a waste of time as I quit 20 minutes in. Since then I haven't been out running and I haven't wanted to. Instead I've sat on the couch and felt sorry for myself in between struggling to meet deadlines that are so impossible I don't know why I'm getting so stressed out by them.
It took 2 hours of procrastination this morning before I finally got out there. No podcasts, no garmin,no planned route, just music playing on shuffle and off I went. Before I knew it I had navigated my way back home thinking I hadn't done much again but mapped out my run and found I had done 5.2k in about 30 minutes give or take, so I'm pretty happy with that considering how much running I haven't been doing!
So I came on here for the first time in over a week thinking how well I had done despite such a horrid few weeks and the first blog I found was Vixie's about running despite losing her brother so suddenly. Well there's nothing like a bit of perspective to sort your head out and it made me realise how stupid, self-pitying and self indulgent I have been. Why would I deal with whatever issues are going on by NOT doing the one thing that was improving my life? So consider myself told! That's the last time I let real life stop me from getting out there and continuing to try to build a happy and healthier me!!
