I’ve been in a slump the past 2.5-3 weeks. I pushed too hard to fast (not just with running, but with diet also) and I wore myself out. I needed to coach myself out of it (and get some encouragement/reality checks from my sister!).
Deeper issues were pushing the slump and awareness is the first step in dealing with that. I’ve realized how my healing from depression is playing itself out. The process is important so that my mind is changed, my habits are transformed and I makes choices that result in a new homeostasis–a new set point.
I have much to say on this topic, but needed to just do a quick update to get the release started.
Ran 4.3 miles today on the beautiful trail by the ocean. It was a good run!
