Training break was a little longer than I expected. There was the Nashville Film Festival (more on that later, I promise!), and then I just couldn’t be bothered. I’ve done c25k intervals here and there, but nothing regular. Is this how normal people live, exercising whenever or not at all? I could get used to that! I spent afternoons after work not huffing and puffing in the blaring sun but relaxing and catching up on stuff! Did you know you can run errands during the week? It’s a thing people do! But enough with the mundane–on to another type of mundane.
After Ragnar I decided to take a break. And then I decided to do the Dairy Dash anyway. Oh, and a 5k next month. Some break!
It’s been hard getting back into the swing. I just don’t want to. Oddly enough, training got me through a somewhat difficult winter depression. Even losing my pace, I still enjoyed it. Getting back has been a challenge. Most runs are slogs, but every so often one is a delight, reminding me why I started. I think I’m back in a rut and I need a new course. Still, my regular course is so comfortable and simple! Well, and flat, which is why it’s so comfortable. I need to challenge myself.
Since I don’t have much to say, here’s a picture of a strawberry pie.
