So how are you supposed to stay focused when you are physically and mentally exhausted? I had such a hard work week and because I was so tired and busy, I missed running Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Not off to a good start.
Well, I finally made it for a jog/ workout today and was thinking about this the whole time. It is already so hard to balance work and personal life. Now I want to focus on running again! How did I focus on this before. Then it hit me...."oh yeah, I was getting up at 4am several times a week to get my runs in.
But wait a minute. Getting up wasn't the focus. That was the dedication to the focus. What/ where was the real focus coming from? Then another "Ah-Ha!" moment. My self adopted mantra popped in my head.
"Running is Cheaper then Therapy...." That's what kept me going. It's what was keeping me sane. It was/ is the focus on the activity that keeps the balance between work and life. It is MY personal alone time. The ME time I have always loved. I guess I just kinda lost my focus for a little while. It's good to have it back.
