For those of you who are regular readers, you recall my post from yesterday when I saw this woman and got so caught up in her story, that I almost tripped on my run. Well, I saw her at the exact same place this morning! I laughed to myself, thinking how funny the universe is. I said, “Nope, you’re not gonna get me twice in one week!” As I continued on my run, I thought how much I love my new morning routine. That woman is not the only person I regularly see. There are many people I regularly see on my morning runs, just as when I taught four 6:30 am classes per week, I would see the same yoga students in my class day, after day, after day.
Sure, there are some parts of routine that feel like a drag, but you must infuse your day with routine things that you love. Exercise is one of my favorites but it could be anything; your favorite coffee, your favorite jam. Your favorite morning show, your favorite morning shower routine. Whatever it is, love it. Don’t just trudge through it. Let it fill your heart with love and gratitude.
My leg is the same; still about 70%. The interesting thing is running is not making it any worse, which I consider a good sign. I ran a slow to moderate 5 miles this morning and felt good. Tomorrow will be a day off for me.
For those of you who are giving me feedback about the colors of the blog: thank you! I continue to play with new colors to find something that not only looks good but isn’t too bright or hard to read. I appreciate all your thoughts.
