i ran for the first time today in a long time. i’ve been walking around the lake, working up to running again. knee was fine. but man, i am out of shape. it happens so quickly! felt good, though. and i ran with kelly, a new friend. the goal is to regularly run around the 3.5 mile loop with ease. i wonder how long it will take to work up to that again? running today made me miss jessica and roxanna in portland.
today, i made a conscious effort to ignore the “should” whispers. i should be doing some more research. i should be in the studio. i should take a nap. i should be exploring more. i should cook more. i should be working on that website, or that project, or contact that person. instead, i woke up when i woke up, felt more relaxed. and i’ll try again tomorrow. i don’t want to make bad habits for myself with this transition. i have a tendency to go overboard and forget to eat lunch or take a break and pee. i’m slooowing down, with some good effort.
