Golden Life, Emotional Running and a Flashback.

on October 19, 2017

Hey there hump day people! Checking in a little late today. We had a pretty fun day over here as well as got some grading done, etc.

A little bit from yesterday….

Everyone needs a Golden Retriever friend to come over and play, right? We get him tomorrow too!

Just before bedtime, everyone one wanted in on some snuggle action.

For some reason, I woke up in the middle of the night with some low back pain and couldnt go back to sleep. That was a nice 4 hours of hang out time. Blech!

Brooke and I started the morning off with a dip in the hot tub to loosen things up. She didnt complain πŸ˜‰

Somehow, that is the only picture I took today! We did a lot of playing, took a trailer ride (1 hour of base), working, laundry and all that jazz.

Came across this article…

It talks about the emotional side of trail running. I dont really think about the emotion involved with workouts often. I am not one to cry because of a workout or the excitement or emotion of a race. I dont often reflect on body image. I know that I am not the fastest runner, the fittest cyclist or have the rock hardest (word?) body and you know what, I am A-ok with that. I am happy where I am and with what I can do. Running for me is a great way to burn off the crazy and I am so appreciative of that!

Thoughts? Are you a run-thinker? Does emotion come into play for your workouts? Do I need to see a psych for my lack of self reflection? πŸ˜‰

Anyways….came across so fun flashback photos! Thought they could be fun!
