well I'm sad to report that I won't reach my 100 mile goal this month. I've been having a bit of turmoil on the homefront and my running has suffered because of it. well tomorrow I deliver my horses to their new home. this greatly saddens me to no end however, I realize that they deserve better than I can give at this time in my life. I was very lucky to find a good home for them both and therefore, would be foolish to turn it down. so no running today either. quite frankly I've been sick over all this and have not even been able to function very well. I know this needs to happen, but it has not been without great sadness on my part. I love my horses! I always have and being with out them for even a moment will make my days dark and sad. I know it will all pass but it will take me some time to bounce back from this one. so I'll try to get in a few miles in the morning - but I need to leave after lunch to deliver the horses and it is a 2 hour drive - then home so I know I won't run tomorrow after all that - and tuesday I may get in a few miles in the morning and hopefully at lunch - but I have a meeting after work - so no run then either - there is no way I can run the over 20 miles I need in just 2 days. so I'm going to just take this and own it. for the first month since March I won't reach my 100 mile goal.
no miles today:
July: 76 rounding down I dislike . anything for miles
Weekly: just that 5
yearly: going to round up so 511 left to go -
so actually I would be happy to run the 11 and atleast reach the 1/2 way point in my 1000 mile goal for the year - hoping I'll feel better by morning to get in a few miles then
so know I'm fine - just a bit sad - life has been throwing me alot of curve balls lately and I'm sure it isn't done with me yet.
so take care my friends - things will get better - and thanks in advance for all your great support - I can always count on my great spark friends for your amazing words of support and thought.
