Hello and happy weekend!
I am back from my long run and ready to relax before enjoying the rest of the weekend.
Running these days has been treating me rather well. I noticed my weekly mileage has stayed consistently above 30 miles for a while now and I have been enjoying the crisp morning air that greets me and of course, my new sneakers.
I love any opportunity to quote Oprah.
So yes, in case you were wondering, I am still out there running almost every day. As for my fall race calendar, it is still a large question mark without any real answer in sight.
In fact, I ran into a friend at the gym the other morning who wanted to know how the 10k I was supposed to run last weekend went for me.
I told him I didn’t run.
He stared at me with a blank look and then questioned if I was injured.
I told him I was just fine and simply didn’t feel like it.
The man he was training with then chimed in and asked me if I lost my desire to run.
Lose my desire? Anything but.
I wish I could have offered them both more of an explanation but I couldn’t because I do not have one.
I am not sure where the race itch went but I don’t even try to figure it out.
As long as I am still eager to get out there each morning, as long I am enjoying each and every run, isn’t that all that matters?
We tend to over-analyze and question every move we make or don’t make in fear of heading down the wrong path.
We need to learn to trust ourselves and our decisions.
Confession: I am really good at letting life happen without over-analyzing and I don’t struggle to make big decisions except when it comes to dessert.
Do you know how long I stare at these Cold Stone Creamery combinations before making up my mind?
I have been thinking about my favorite chocolate dipped waffle bowl so a trip to Cold Stone this weekend is on my to-do list.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and please, treat yourself to something chocolate. Or an onion ring. Or something yummy…
