Running longer and faster… a few thoughts…

Back home… Finally?

From Arrakis to frozen/snowy Caladan (thanks for the reference, you know who you are!). Brrr, really tough start this morning.

Body feels fine apart from the thigh. Had to stand quite often during today’s meeting as sitting position made my legs becoming stiff. Drank water as usual, got my tea cups quota back to before the marathon week and fruits during the day as recommended!

Mind feels that it will take a bit of time to get back to normal. Once again after such runs a clear void takes place. Two solutions: go down in depression and hope for the best (!) or -I choose this latter one!- get on with daily activities and ACCEPT the emptiness it feels during a week and start a new challenge right after… Does not need to be a big challenge but something worth doing that will make one proud and happy when completed.

Below are what welcome me on the way back home this evening (could not take a pic this morning, rain outside…) so the question is: remind me why I even come back here?!?!

    Welcome home. Still impressed with your time 🙂
    Mentally difficult to get out and with icy roads (though it starts to melt now:-)), but you inspire and show that it is possible.

    Take care – warm hugs

    • Thanks, J! Here it is difficult to convince myself NOT to go out and run! Give body & mind some rest for one more day before starting easy.

      Nice with the hugs as it is clearly freezing here! Compared to the beach in Dubai…

      Keep up the spirit, we’ll have fun in Paris 🙂
