I woke up with the wrong mindset.
I had a lot of bad dreams last night and woke up with the usual imposter syndrome bollocks. When I’m just awake I struggle to see all that is good in life. I know it exists but it’s as if I’m not on the same plane as it.
I tried to rectify my mindset with 3 strong cups of coffee but that just made shit way worse.
I started having a mild panic attack. It’s then that I decided to have a rest day. I walked downstairs to book the extra night in the hotel but I couldn’t get the words out. So I booked it online and then called the receptionist. I’m a smooth operator.
I woke up in a poor mood as I’ve been exerting myself a lot. Yesterday in particular was draining. To do 51k in that heat was a massive achievement and I can’t lose sight of that.
On 14 of the 15 days so far I’ve woke up in the right mindset. That’s an overwhelming majority. The best mindset is to see each day as an opportunity to explore. I don’t have to run 30 miles each day, I just have to get out there for that first run and then it’s time for a meal. Then I move on from there.
I made the right call today. I’ve ran 407 miles in 14 days. That’s more than I’ve ever done in a month.
I’m going back out there tomorrow stronger than ever and refreshed.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to the fundraiser especially in the last day. Hard to believe it’s almost at 75% of the total. It will keep me going tomorrow!
