It's been a while

 It has been a while since I last wrote a post. In fact it has been a while since I last did anything related to the blog. That hasn't been intentional, like most other people lockdown has changed routines and habits. Covid has pretty much changed everything.

September last year saw a major change for me, I returned to full time employment. After working for myself for so long it was a scary but exciting change and a leap I am glad that I took. With the children at school I had a really good work life balance and was finding time to tick off many things I had been meaning to do for sometime. At the moment though the children are home and I am juggling homeschooling and working full time. Everything else has taken a back seat.

I worked really hard just before the first lockdown and managed to pass my strength test to run again, but I have taken it easy. I do not know if this is due to a lack of races and things to train for or if it is a fear that is now inbuilt subconsciously to stop me breaking my ankle again. Whatever it is I now cover the same mileage in a month that I used to cover in a week. I will build it back up again but am in no rush.

Running over bridge

Which again sees another mind shift. I now just run. I don't actually know where my running watch is, I haven't worn it for such a long time and I am ok with this. I enjoy just running. I have an approximate idea how far the distance is from running the roads around here for years, but in terms of pace I really do not know. I actually really like it. I like just running and listening to my body. Slowing when it needs me to and pushing when it feels ok. 

Whilst I might not wear a running watch I do sometimes set a timer and just go for a run for a set period of time. I will set a challenge of trying to get further than the last time I ran that route. With home schooling I am not able to get out as often as I would like to but when I do get out I am really enjoying my running again.

This day I love It's been a while
