I’m thinking about attempting another mileage goal for the month of May. Last month, I tried to run 100 miles total for the month of March. I made it to 80. I think I might attempt 100 miles again in May.
I am starting to look at summer and fall races. It’s like strolling through a bakery with really delicious cakes, cupcakes, and cookies strewn about.
The beginning of this week was very stressful at work. I was mitigating several crises and my co-workers and colleagues were also visibly stressed. Yesterday, I got home from work and immediately put on my running clothes. I enjoyed around 4 miles of trailing running under the green canopies of the trees and plants. I felt so rejuvenated and cared for when I returned home. Running is an amazing conduit for meditation and relaxation. I continue to owe much of the sustainability in my work/life balance to this practice.
