I have so many things in my mind and so many things I want to talk about and yet it still seems like I don't really know where to start for my first real post. I have so many different ideas so clearly I'm not going to be focused for the next few posts, but I can say I do have a lot that I'm going to share. I've been cooking and baking a lot recently and it's been wonderful. Mostly all successes, although one major failure. I've been photographing a lot too and since I'm a major perfectionist I tend to delay sharing photos because I want them to be perfect or can't decide which ones I like best. Editing and deciding my best work has never been something I'm very good at, but I'm trying to get better! I'll be sharing much more soon from my kitchen adventures.
It's been really hot here lately so I've been getting up early to run and just in general struggling to adjust to my new running times. Morning running is pretty nice once I get used to waking up so early and I had a good run this morning so that helps my outlook. I've been lacking structure in the last few weeks since my marathon which is both good and bad. But, with all the baking I've been doing I definitely have reasons to stay running! Usually I take a pretty big break after a marathon where I lose interest in running since I have no focus, no goal and no training plan. I do love my training plans! Thankfully, so far I've been staying really committed to running and I'm very pleased with it. There hasn't been much emotional or physical downtime and I'm enjoying the freedom of running whatever I want and still have the benefits of continued running. I know I'll be ready to start structured training again at the beginning of July but for now I'm enjoying the lack of a training plan.
I thought I'd share a few miscellaneous photos from recently. I will have more to share very soon!
