I’ve been thinking, one of the hardest things about running regularly or training is the interruptions to regular routines. By this I don’t mean interruptions in a negative sense at all - quite the contrary actually.
For example, last weekend I had a friend staying. While I probably could have continued to run with her here (and she wouldn’t have minded, I’m sure) I felt rude doing so. Which meant I skipped my longer run. And so various feelings of guilt have arrived.
I could have just gone for my longer run one night this week, but for some reason my routine is entrenched now, and I don’t feel like I can or want to break it. So, I am trying to go for slightly longer shorter runs this week to make up for it.
Riveting stuff, this post, but I think as runners we are constantly dealing with interruptions and the best way to get back on track (pun intended) so that our routines don’t suffer too much as a result.
