Do you ever feel off? Just sort of blah? I wanted to have a view the like picture above today, but instead I got to spend 8 hours on my feet at work. I didn’t get back from vacation that long ago, I have to keep telling myself. Sometimes though, I just feel like I need more time away from it all.
Lately my runs haven’t even felt as good as they usually do. They do still relieve stresses of my life, but I just don’t feel balanced lately. I think I need to spend more time reading, with my feet up. I need to spend more time envisioning that beach in my minds eye, and let it put me in a happier place.
My life is transitioning somewhat though in the next few months, and I think that may be part of the reason why I feel off. My eldest is finishing High School, and will be leaving the nest soon. Change. In the back of my mind I tend to envision how it all will go. I need to relax more about it.
Have you ever had phases in life where your one stress relief just doesn’t seem to be cutting it? For me, it’s running. I can’t run through every blah though. I hope I am not getting burned out. Sometimes the a run just feels like a chore, and I can’t have it be that way. I need to recharge and refocus. Running is essential in my life, and I want it to be more fun right now.
My Marathon a week from today? I plan on having fun!
