Maybe it’s not always about trying to fix something broken. Maybe it’s about starting over and creating something better.
I have felt for sometime now that the running portion of my life has been spinning tires and not gaining any traction. That feeling hasn’t been just based around low over all numbers and infrequent outtings but the totality of effort overall. In terms of fitness deconstruction I walked into a bit of a perfect storm and had no pushback for it. I wasn’t prepared.
I’m not going to give the last 10 mths or so any more thought or energy. The current month is off to a decent start and I’ll rebuild from there. I have new short term goals and there is a big milestone beginning to come into focus on the horizon. I’m 176 km from hitting the 9000 km mark and obviously 1176 km from rolling 10,000. I fully expect to hit the 9 thousand mark with in 2-3 weeks and from there I’m going to aggressively chase down the 10,000 KM milestone. In some respects I wish the upcoming benchmarks had been noticed a little earlier as I would have loved to have rolled 10,000 ahead of turning 40 at the end of June. It’ll be close but I don’t for see any chance of being able to reach that mark before mid July.
