What posts in June? Oh, thooooose thirty posts in June… again. It seems that for the fourth year in a row I’ve climbed aboard the daily blogging train and continued that monumental, multi-year writing effort to string a topic or idea across the vast reaches of years. Each day a new post on a new topic, but on the same blog-per-day topic as last year, creating another set of Those 30 Posts in June. Today, that post just happens to be:
June 28th // Something You Want to Break
Even I’m not crazy enough to be too hard on myself for a poor couple of months of training when an injury is involved. But the truth of the matter is that I’ve let myself get a little lazy because of that back injury.
Running is a habit. It’s a lifestyle. It’s about eating right, sleeping well, hydrating, and showing up for practices even when you don’t want to be there.. especially when you don’t want to be there.
Injury kicks you out of a groove, and that disruption sucks. It causes you to stumble into a blip in your training. You may be getting out and doing something, but the effort isn’t the same…. the heart of it is diminished. If you’re not careful, the blip becomes a bump and then the bump becomes a hump, and the hump… well… I’m at a bit of a hump and I’m not sure I want to find out what’s coming up after that.
I have some ideas on a remedy to get me back on track. Part of that is running a race on Tuesday. But… I have a streak I want to break and it’s not necessarily one I’m proud of right now..
