Digressions: Getting Back To It

Really, folks, I have more blog posts to come, but I have gotten off track with running, blogging, and a slew of other things. Like a lot of people, I have been snared by the idea that being busy with work is the most important thing that we can do with our lives.

It tends to send my stress (and probably my blood pressure) through the roof. Sometimes we need to re-assess things and take some time for ourselves. While it is important to do good work if we don’t occasionally recharge, our work will degrade.

So, I am at a point where I am reassessing the goals for the balance of the year and what kind of training I should be doing. Right now, the goal is to get back to consistency in training and to try to run where there are trees and nature when I can. It is supposed to help with stress. While I appreciate the situational awareness training that running on city streets gives me, sometimes it is nice to get away from it all. Being around trees has been linked to better mental health.

With five months left in the year, there is still plenty of room for development, and blog writing. So here is my promise of more good things to come.
