a little odd for january, but hard to resist in the weather we had today. it must have hit 70. the kids are still home, they don't go back until tomorrow. and i blatantly skipped my swim workout in favor of recovering a little more from yesterdays' 21.
there were good tunes throughout the house all day.
kids playing outside like it was summer.
a little housecleaning, a little rearranging.
cleaned out, fresh backpacks.
it all made for a very nice recovery day. a little mental health day so to speak. i hate it when panic and doubt come to visit. i honestly didn't think they'd stop by this time around. and its worse when they come along on a run. those runs where even as you tell yourself, just run, just run; you think you cannot do this. its no fun to be out on that ledge & need to be talked back in. but all it takes is a little day off, self-imposed or scheduled; to feel back on track, to realize you just had a shitty run, nothing more - to feel like you can do it. and to actually look forward to lining up at the mile repeat yellow line tomorrow morning.
