living in the now

Still rambling about running. Sometimes other things.

The new normal is somewhere

I knew that starting a new job was going to throw things off, but I didn't think it would REALLY throw me off. Shamrock training started great, but then it just kind of hit a big thud this week. 

My goal after Monday was simple: just get out there and run a few times during the week. Mileage, effort, pace, place ... none of that matter. I simply wanted to run a few times in the morning before week. 

Since that was my goal, it was successful. But this weekend a linger blister from my Thursday night basketball game prevented my long run. 

I could ramble on and on about how frustrating this week felt despite running a few times in the morning before work, but I won't. It happened. It's over. I don't have time to dwell on those things.

I have to get up in the morning and do better than I did last week. It's really that simple, I think, to find that new normal ...
