A Not So Very Great Week...
When I started my head wasn't in it but about 1 and 1/2 miles in I was there, but not really in my zone. I just feel kind of off, a little sore, a little tired. Maybe it is all the rain we keep having during the weekends. Those runs are usually where I get a long run and get some sun. I have been missing them, but the forecast looks promising for the long weekend. I am looking forward to a three day weekend and some sun. I am sure that will help me get more focused. In the meantime, it is lay my clothes out and just power through. I know the enthusiasm will return this is just a blip on the radar.
I was reading my Women's Running today and I found this story about a woman who said that running helped her find balance at work. As I read that story it really resonated with me. I never put it exactly like that, but I can say the same. She said, "when I discovered running I found something I loved to do as much or more than work. I never had that before." I find I am the same way. I always loved my husband and my cats more than work, but I never had another activity that gave me the same since of satisfaction. Running does that for me, and like her, I think it has made me easier to work with, so I guess I can push on through the week.
