Progress is worth the process is a notion I have been focusing on lately. A few factors in my day-to-day life feel mismatched & uncertain right now, but the constant mental refresher has been training & running.
Without divulging to much, my role at work is being elimanted companywide, with the last day announced as 1/15/18. Yet there are still other factors at play, (partially out of my control) in me staying or finding something new. Needless to say, this pushes me into a daily spiral of maybes and seeps into my sleep at night… I am basically living in a nonconclusive yet swaying timetable.
My thoughts seem to break and the dull buzz of uncertainty subsides when I run and dive into things within my control. Workouts have been key to feeling level and my upcoming race, now within arms reach, haunts me with wanting the outcome I know I am capable of.
As I watch parts of my life change and transition, the progress I have made in my training has helped me to feel empowered, strong, and still full of purpose.
Focusing on the next 18 days, I am choosing to dial into confidence & trust. Confident that my career will be decided by what I want out of it and trusting my body to pull me to a very courageous and epic finish.
Stats of 249.2 miles last month, 65 miles two weeks ago, 49 miles for “taper” LW, strong race results in workouts, and lots of ah-ha moments of growth all will lead me to a moment that is so close!
18 days away… Trust. Trust. Trust .
