Trying to get my Mojo Back
Yesterday I could not take anymore and I decided to head out after "nursing" duty and check out my new route at the house. You have to love all sidewalks. We have sidewalks everywhere here so I can run in the AM without taking my life in my own hands. I am pretty sure all the hills will make me a stronger runner. My old AM route ended with hills but was pretty flat for most of it. This route has a lot of rolling hills up and down. The only problem is that it is a little dark in places. I never used a light before but now I think I need one. Only problem not sure what to go with head lamp or knuckle lights. I need it to be every season ready and not too cumbersome. Anyway yesterday afternoon I did not set out to really run, but on rested legs, and a need for endorphins I found myself running around 8:30/mile. It felt good. It is the first time in a week I actually enjoyed running. Here is hoping my life is settling down. Hoping to go back to cooking and eating like I usually do. Also look forward to getting the house set up and resuming a routine.
I just don't remember a more stressful time, where everything seemed to just be mounting up. Running yesterday and again this morning gave me a little peace of mind. I am looking forward to finding more of that. Also I can't believe that stupid ground hog saw his shadow. Isn't is spring yet?
I hope you have had a more peaceful week. I welcome any suggestions on a light.
