Some days I feel like all I think about is running: running after school, eating food to fuel my long run on Saturdays, stretching before the shower because I’m sore from last night’s run and it feels like I can’t bend.
I didn’t run as many miles as I did in January, only logging 29 for this month. But I ran my miles faster than last month and I ran more miles at a time. Which is an improvement so I can’t complain. Also, this month, my training program changed up one day of mile-running to sprinting and interval running so I didn’t actually count those distances but I did a LOT of sprinting and hills this month. Let’s just say I’m glad that’s over.
In between running all the time and eating all the time, I managed to have more friend time which makes my heart happy. January seemed to be more about hibernating and less about being social, so I’m glad to have (mostly) gotten over my funk and joined civilization again. And March is jam-packed with friends, travel, and vacations so I’m really looking forward to the month ahead. Plus, I hear it’s going to finally be warmer soon? Please let that be true…
The past week or so has been spent running full-speed toward Jesus. Recently, I’ve just been struggling with how messed up our world is, how little control we ultimately have, and how fleeting time is. And when I get anxious and worry, which truly isn’t often, I seem to be in constant conversation with God. I’d call them prayers but they’re a lot less formal and focused than what I think of as prayer (I guess we could get into an argument about the semantics of prayer if we had to, but let’s just say I’m talking to God a lot right now, more than I have been recently). It focuses my runaway thoughts and calms my fears. I’m still working on running to Him as a habit as opposed to an afterthought. Always a work in progress, I guess.
