I've had a bit of a difficult time of late and I have consequently been stressing about my running goals ( I set a very high bar for myself), but I am quite hedonistic in some other aspects of my life which doesn't help ( more when I'm stressed). A bit of a jeckyl and Hyde really!!
So- I have decided to go easy on myself and adjust my goals as I don't want running to become a chore or beat myself up for failing etc....
Changed my year goal from 1,300 to 1000 miles so I'm well in target.
Removed my 25 miles a week goal ( on Strava) strava.com/athletes/14419217 ( my profile)
Accept I won't get the run Everest badge for May
Carry on my runstreak as that gives me a huge boost and sense of achievement
Other things I will try and do:
Cut down on booze
Eat more healthy stuff and drink more water ( I'm so crap at this)
Allow myself more mindfulness type of activity ( not sure what tho, I'm also v crap at this)
Accept my problems and get on with life!!
Thanks for listening #jujutherapy
