I wish I had an awesome excuse for being MIA, but sadly, no alien abduction, secret society, record contract or cult activity here.
The boring reality is that I’ve been doing too many things. Turns out that the whole ‘I’ll go run a business’ thing is, well, kind of exactly what I expected in the hard department. But so, so rewarding. The kids I work with make me smile all the time, and now that we’ve been seeing them for a few months, their marks are improving, and they’re happier individuals. And it’s the best.
Mr The Rake – it’s been really tough, and I know you’re the one who’s copped most of it, but thank you. So much! No way could this Runner Chick have just started a business without your love and support.
Oh, hang on. This is a running blog.
Well, guess what?
I’m not running.
But only for a week! Senor Swiss Ball has decided that I need to start at the beginning. So it’s a week of walking and slow weights work and getting my spine to stay in a straight line.
There’s method to the madness. If I can help my body to get stronger and more efficient, I will run faster. In the mean-time, I am an anxious lump of runner crazy. I had to sit Senor Swiss Ball down and request a list of rules and permitted activities, as well as a timeline for when I could run again.
Have any of you ever ‘started again’? It feels so counter-intuitive, but I suspect it will be hugely important over the coming months.
One of our year 12 girls got 2nd in the class on her latest assignment!
What are you excited about at the moment?
Have you ever re-started your running?
Have you ever been abducted by aliens?
Random aside – I once met a guy who cheerfully told me he’d been part of a cult, and it wasn’t too bad.
