Unforeseen Consequences

From a training perspective, things were going along well at the start of this year. However, I found myself in a less than ideal situation from a personal point of view. I had been using running as a way to deal with / avoid the situation, but it got to be too much to deal with, and sadly my training was the first thing to go - in an effort to reduce my overall stress.…

It’s exciting, and we are very stoked for our new adventure, but it has thrown my training habit into a … well, it’s actually killed my training habit. I am very grateful that nowadays when I don’t get to do regular exercise, I feel really off. It used to be that I would have to force myself to go do some physical activity.…
