Today is a good day.
I think, every now and then, I’ll go back and touch on a few things I’ve addressed before. Once I write an entry, I haven’t managed to cure the problem I was addressing and it’s important sometimes to just reevaluate things.
I’ve pretty much stayed off of Facebook, despite efforts by Facebook to make me check it. I deleted the app from my home screen on my phone, but it’s still on my phone. If somebody wants to tag me, or post an interesting article, I’ll take a look. I’m not cutting it off entirely. But, since I’m not checking it regularly, I’m now getting notifications, both on my phone and in e-mail, that people are posting photos, or updating their status. At first I would check, but they don’t have anything to do with me, so now I’m just ignoring those as well.
I ran a 5k yesterday. I was slower than other races that I’ve done because I haven’t been running as much since I did my last race on 4 July. (It was a 4 miler, so a little longer than a 5k.) I’m trying to put a more positive spin on running, so my focus yesterday wasn’t in setting a PR, but just relaxing, and enjoying the race and getting to the finish line. I came up with a slogan while running. “Run your own pace, run your own race.” Let’s face it, I’m never winning a race. I’m ok with it, but sometimes I get too focused on trying to hit a certain mark that I don’t listen to what my body is telling me. I set my own pace from the start and ran how I felt. It’s probably the best race I’ve had in a while.
