Not sure if it's the long, quiet bike rides. Or not having something in particular to aim for. Perhaps it's just the time of year as we can slowly start to see summer beginning to fade away and those oh so slight signs of fall peeking around the corner. My mind has never felt so clear.
I have discovered a couple of past loves (horses & cycling) that I fully intend to dive back into, even if at a casual level.
I have a complete new vision on what I want from my running. Next week I will start back up again ... but I will do so intelligently. I will start slow and short, and my only goal will be to get a few miles in without getting sore. Then I will gradually build on that until I am back to being comfortable putting out the mileage that I was doing prior to my half marathon earlier this year. I also have some grand ideas for where I will head once I build that mileage up again.
Also this week I have found so much inspiration from a number of fellow bloggies. In so many areas. I am bursting with energy to explore some of these ideas that are currently roaming around in my head. I feel like a kid at Christmas ... waiting to open up my future. It's a good feeling!
Hope everyone has a FANTASTIC weekend!
Not sure what I have in store. With any luck possibly a sold horse. With even more luck I might find someone to go hiking with (not very optimistic for that one). But I will be active in some shape or form.
