This past week was much like the one before. Super busy with a side of adrenal fatigue. (Or, at least, that is what I believe I’ve been experiencing. Although I am no doctor and my diagnostic credentials are primarily based on my studies at the University of Google.) I will note that I am starting to feel a touch better this week and grateful BIG TIME. We are down to the wire and moving day is approaching fast!
I don’t doubt that this week will prove to be just as challenging and already anticipate missing much of the upcoming weekend since those will be travel days. There is a steady flow of personal reminders that I’m doing the best that I can under the circumstances and during a recent conversation with an acquaintance about my slacking mileage, the response was “well, you are human.” Huh. That’s right. I am.
It does pain me a little to see people training for spring races, especially the Boston Marathon, but I know that once the dust settles, I’ll have a whole new town to run in and new running friends to find. Lots of adventures are on the horizon!
