JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 11.13.21
I started running again this week.
Six days strong as of yesterday.
I don’t go far (about 2, 2.5 miles) and I certainly don’t go fast.
But, I’m trying to get myself into a) better shape and b) a daily habit.
Some consistency….for the sake of doing.
So, I’ve started doing the roadwork again.
A two mile or so loop that takes me from pavement to gravel to trail.
Even bought a new pair of trail running sneakers (in advance of chilly, wet, slightly icy conditions to come)
“Doing The Roadwork” is my euphemism for doing anything that gets you to a better place.
It’s the process that gets you there. And it may often not be fun or enjoyable.
This first week of running has sucked.
I have no wind (I can’t go the 2 miles without walking a little and starting back up).
My legs huuuuuurrrrrt the first 2-3 days.
But I’m going to keep going on.
It may get me to a better place. It may just lead to more soreness.
Not sure yet.
I may quit in a week.
Trust The Process.
And The Roadwork.

“I’m trying to create little dramas that lead people to think, to feel, to dream, to fantasize, to smile… It’s more than just catching beautiful moments; I want to fascinate, to hypnotize, to move my viewers.” ~ Richard Kalvar (November 14, 1944)

Those shoes really pop against the leaves.
You’ll get back to where you are running without the pain. It will just take a little time. The two years have taken a lot out of us and we’re all looking to get to a better place. If we keep pushing forward and doin’ our roadwork, we’ll get there. Some will be faster than others but we will get there.
