I love running, it’s been really good for me, it helps me relax, it helps me sleep, it gives me a sense of achievement and it boosts my wellbeing, so why am I struggling to get out ?
We all have callings on our time, jobs, family’s, responsibilities etc etc but it’s really important to have a distraction, a hobby, a pastime. Mine is running.
I wrote a blog recently about wellbeing and to be honest I haven’t been taking my own advice. I talked about making payments into the “Bank of Me”. Creating a life balance between you, your family and your work is the key.
This might sound selfish but I’m not the same person without running so, ironically, getting back out there will benefit everyone.
I cycle commute virtually every weekday but unless I’m running I find the edge goes off my lung and leg capacity.
Maybe a run commute could be the answer ? That way the family have the car and I get to run 🙂
Have I just answered my own question, ha ha !! That’s the power of collecting your thoughts while writing.
I’m a firm believer that physical fitness takes mental strength and for that you have to believe in yourself. I’ve entered Race to the King which is a double marathon in June so I now have a focus.
It’s time to become a “believer” again !!
Running the local fields this weekend has fired me up, so, watch out 2019 I’m coming to get you !!!
