I’ve said it before, I crave constant distraction. I work better under pressure and when I’m doing a million things at once. Passion. Drive. Focus. When it’s on, it’s on, there’s no stopping it.
I love music, I mean I LOVE music. I love the way it makes me feel, I love the memories it resonates. I lose myself in some of my favorite songs, takes me to a different time or place. I want to start making a new playlist for my training, so I’m on the hunt for new material.
I’ll admit, recently, I fell out of practice. I started falling back into “bad energy” and old practices, the last few weeks. The cool thing is, I can recognize it now. I’ve been sick for six consecutive weeks, I hate not feeling myself. Low energy, short fuse, just feeling “blah”. I started feeling a little sorry for myself. I’m supposed to be working my ass off getting ready for this half marathon and I can’t even breathe, let alone run.
I took a step back yesterday, went back to practicing. It’s amazing how much it helps. Practice practice practice. Positivity. Happy. Breathe. One day at a time. I’ve recharged my batteries and the time is now. I’m ready to focus and feel again. Here we go.
If you are up for the challenge, I encourage you to try it! Here’s a link to one of Amy’s clips…listen to it every day. Take those few minutes for yourself and do it. The most common thing I hear is “I don’t know how to relax”, just let it go. It’s a few minutes. Check it out!
