Here’s a great song by Woods called Be All Be Easy. In other news, the running is coming back around and becoming more consistent. With the temps dropping ever so slightly, I find myself getting super pumped for some fall running. It feels so good to be loving running again! There was a time there when my heart just wasn’t into it and I was scared that I would continue to dislike running after returning to consistency. Maybe I just needed that time away to make me like it all over again. Sure feels good to be back into it and excited to run. I suppose these are common hurdles that pop up from time to time. I don’t recall ever feeling this way about swimming and I imagine that’s because I normally had a break built into training. Historically I would spend the winter cross-country skiing my cheeks off, but this winter proved to be insufficient for that and so I ran instead. (I blame global warming!) This past year I feel like I trained quite consistently and when that year mark hit, I struggled. So, I scaled things back a bit and refocused on why and how I want running to be a part of my life. I’m still trying to figure that out a little bit, but I definitely still want be racing trail ultras, so that’s a good sign! I’m sure something longer of the 50-mile and eventual 100-mile persuasion is in the cards for me, but just not quite yet. Give it time. Happy Hump Day!
