After a mini-hiatus from blogging and running, I’m now refreshed and ready to get back into a routine again.
It’s interesting how intertwined these two areas of my life are. It always seems that the amount of miles I run heavily impacts that amount of writing I produce (More miles = more blog entries)
I recently ended a 39-day running streak, courtesy of the Runner’s World Run Streak, that I participated in.
For the past few weeks, I was counting down the days until I could stop my legs from moving that fast. Once July 4th hit, I wrapped up my last day of the running streak with an easy 4-miles in Central Park. The next day, I relaxed more than I have in the past few months. This continued until the following Wednesday.
Taking a step away from running and writing gave me the time I needed to break out of my routine, kick up my feet , and not worry about logging any runs, re-arranging my schedule, or missing out on events due to my running streak.
It was nice to take a breather.
Alas, I’m back and in the right mindset again.
I’d say that the longer I stay away from running, the more chaotic my life seems to get. It’s definitely the glue that holds everything together for me.
Happy Miles 🙂
