I use to take walks or do a run to relax. I remember the serenity of walking along a path that cut through a forest, or taking a jog through the park.
I tried to do this yesterday…not cut through the forest or anything. I’m in Florida and well, I’m terrified of alligators and snakes. I took a run in the early morning. And usually I return refreshed from these runs, tired, but my mind is ready to go again.
This time, I had so much to think about on the run that actually the thinking exhausted me. The run refreshed my body. Usually it’s the opposite. The run exhausts my body and clears my mind. This time my mind was exhausted and my body felt really good.
I’ve just had so much to think about lately. Upcoming exams and life in general. Maybe today’s run (this time on a treadmill) will be much better.
