Picking up where I should be in the schedule as if I didn’t miss 10 training days doesn’t feel right.
Maybe I am my own worst enemy.
Paradoxically, it seems that running more may be the key to feeling each run less.
We are what we repeatedly do, not what we repeatedly do as little as possible to eke out some minimal benefit.
The idea checked all the right boxes… Friends, Running, Disney, Star Wars, escaping the infinite rainy season of Seattle right at the point where I would forget that there’s a way to do weather that’s not 40°F and raining.
Running around that indoor track signified the beginning of a way of thinking that’s been with me ever since and is pervasive in my life.
