|Autumn mist on a nearby trail|
Work is on my mind a lot again, perhaps because I have not been running since last weekend. I have some big questions in my mind which I am trying to work through - should I take a career break, or a career change or maybe I'm where I am "meant to be"? This morning's run was too short to work through these questions but it did loosen up my muscles for a longer run tomorrow morning - as usual I'll be running at daybreak with even fewer people around on a Sunday.
Running is a brilliant time for reflecting on things and longer more intense runs are sometimes inspirational for me. Maybe that's what I need for tomorrow. Nevertheless running is proving good for me physically and mentally - and I know there's a certain dependency going on. Being addicted to running or cycling doesn't seem to be such a bad thing, compared to other addictions that spring to mind. It sets me up for the day very well.
Just as a brief change of subject and to wrap this post up, I was both amused and a little worried as I came across some cattle unexpectedly this morning. I think we surprised each other and thankfully they were too cold to get too worried about me, so I took a photograph and ran for it!
Oh, one more thing. At the time of writing my Blogger template is using one of the new dynamic views. I have mixed feelings about this and might switch back to the old one but I really want to know what my readers think. For me it is showing the real number of page views with 200-300 hundred a day, which is significant up on the old template. Please leave me a comment if possible. Thanks, Doug.
