This blog started of as a way to deal with becoming ill but has pretty much became a record of my running journey. I'm a bit obsessed with medals, you might have noticed. Medal Watch is my new favourite thing as well as tracking progress for tour training, the dreams of doing Dopey and the journey to becoming a CEP pacer.

Shoe Selfie at Ackers Pit
It was difficult to go for a run today but not because of the reasons you would think. I haven't ran for a week, because of a calf injury, but that's not the reason I was having trouble getting out of the door. I got it into my head that I couldn't leave the house. After two bad days sat on the sofa unable to do anything I started to get a bit depressed. I don't get depressed very often, I try to find the good in everything and see the positives but sometimes it's hard to keep fighting all the time. So I give in and the depression just hits me like a massive wave and I can't stay afloat. I didn't want to leave the house, like every again, or talk to people. Thankfully I have the most amazing husband who just lets me moan at him and then I forced myself to go for a run (which was pretty much like forcing myself to eat slugs or something). So, I ran without a route in mind and ended up finding somewhere pretty and new, even though I've ran past it a billion times. I stopped and laid back on the grass for a while, looking at the moon in a blue sky and just enjoying being alive.
