An awful week…sometimes’s you just have to deal with that
began ruff..eventually pciked up and then, well faded as the week progressed….
was it work, the weather, life..or me?…guessing just my head…
I spend a lot of time over-thinking life/me…..
It’s not like I don’t have the time…maybe it’s because of a bunch of things like; maybe it’s because I’m on my own, or that there’s nothing to train for.……
Every evening I go to bed with huge plans for the morning…..then come the morning, it’s time for breakfast, coffee, or Facebook, by the time I’m done, my plans for the day are punted…..and the couch becomes my friend for the day….
The best strategy, that seems to work = don’t take the time to think…JUST DO!
I admit, my head still does not feel the the best…I still wake up with a headache every morning…usually while I’m still in bed…the concussion continues to rule…and reminds me how stupid I can be…..
even with that, my best days are when just do, rather than think about it….even when I feel my worst…just go, get up and go…….just get going before I have time to think or starts something else…
One of the best races I’ve ever done was a half marathon in Vancouver years ago….
I woke up, thought, I’m not running today….for some reason, I barfed…was it something I ate?….I then decided that, at some point, I’d through on my run gear, walk to where the public transportation to the start was, and if I felt okay I’d get on board…
I got there, hoped on, got off, and said okay, I’d walk to the starting spot at Queen E Park..and see how I felt….
then something weird happened, about half way through the route, it felt like I’d just woken up..and I was running!
And I felt good…but I had to trick myself to do the run/race…but had fun..so I have to start remembering that once again..
gotta run…gotta bike….gotta swim…..gotta get going…it just feels comfortable….a lot has to do with the length of time I’ve been away from lots of training, when training was all the time…….but, also dealing with the head…..how do I over come that?
Also now, I can’t wrap my head around longer distances……30 minutes or an hour seems okay, but anything beyond that seems to be a challenge for my head to get around…….
That’s part of the reason for this blog, to create and follow a road back, back to were I was…..pretty much almost 21 years ago…..when, well, I was fab….and hope other want to follow along, a learn what I know, what I have learned…and to see what makes this all work, all better…and me active and fit
well, that’s the blog……….so, tomorrow…let’s start again…….positive thoughts…..
