You know when things happen to you and you seek out activities and comforts to clear your head? Well, running is that for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love my comfort food, but I tend to lose my appetite during stressful situations. For some reason, I went running at 3 a.m. last night. I just couldn’t sleep. It was a little scary seeing as my new workout room has see-through windows, but I was all locked in and safe. We have an awesome surround sound system in the gym so I cranked up some jams and ran a good 4-miles. It didn’t really help clear my head though and I contemplated running another few miles, but was finally getting tired.
Thank goodness my warm shower made me feel better. Needless to say, I’m extremely tired today! Tea, tea, tea! I’ve been on a “no coffee or energy drink” mission lately. Today is my 4th day without one! 🙂 I’m going strong. As for the running, I felt great and I’m working up my mileage every week for the half marathon – and hopefully my head will be cleared the next time I run. I tend to have an overactive mind/imagination that gets the better of me. Hey – I’m creative, right?
So, if not running, what the thing that clears your head?
