Any day that you're too busy to run...

With less than two weeks less of my English course and with FEAT out of the way, I'm hoping that my 18-hour days will come to an end. This really is ridiculous. I'd argue that running, health, mental and physical well-being is more important that client committments, event organising (and my responsibility to speakers and the audience) and assignments. But reality doesn't work that way...

For the past few weeks I've probably only been running two or three times a week. And there has been no circus school either. That's so not good for me. I feel far better and more balanced when I'm running 5-7 times a week, even if just for 30-45mins. And of course there are the welcome social interactions of regular group classes, like circus school and pole.

Fortunately, these incredibly intense periods are finite (too frequent though!) and comparatively short... biting the bullet has been tough, especially after coming off a really superb few running months from May and into August.

Yes, it's a good thing to remember that...

Yup. Feel the same way that when I don't run I feel all out balance. It's strange also, you know that but sometimes are reluctant to run due to time etc. and then you feel great after your run. Unlike you I love my early morning runs, little to no traffic, cool temperature and the only sounds you hear are the noisy birds and your breathing. But bring on the rainy season with afternoon showers and I will run after the rain stops or at least eases. Love running after the rain or in very light rain.

Robert, you're so right. I always feel better, more refreshed and better able to face the world after a run - even just a 30-minute run. The slope is slippery eh? I ran in the rain tonight - for the last glorious 10 minutes of my run. Drenched! and happy.
