Busy day with mortgage stuff, Benny, inspection on the house.. not running has been a good thing with all this happening. I think if I had had a moment to myself today I may have went out and exercised. The feeling that I am ready to start back is creeping in again but I often tell my athletes- wait until you are dying to exercise. My body is feeling ready but that is only a small part of the equation- although I think it is (literally) larger now. The mental break is critical and I want to wait until it is ready to go again. It'll let me know..
This time of the year is always the hardest with the holidays looming. It seems like December is the hardest month to train, sort of like an evening after a hard day's work... but there was fudge and cookies and 2 huge turkey dinners in the break room. January it seems, sees athletes raring to go again. I've always liked sunrises and Januaries, they're beginnings.
