Got up at 5:30 (half an hour to an hour early). Did my everyday exercise and meditation stuff with extra stretching. Out the door around 6:15. My Do Not Disturb is set to ignore push notifications until 7am. Oops.

Feeling like crying, feeling like throwing up, and losing hope are all part of the process, right?

Today was week 2, workout 3. My worst distance since the ignominious week 1, workout 1, at a poorly-chosen park. I logged 2.42 miles today, and felt yuckiest afterward than ever, both physically and emotionally.

I second-guess every pain and twinge, I worry that I’ve chosen clothes/shoes/socks that are going to hurt me, I berate myself for stealing so much time from other things to stretch, train, and recover. (Yes, I’ve already researched and made careful choices about those questions.) I thought running was supposed to be so convenient, you just put on your shoes and go. Something must be wrong with me that I have to spend so much time psyching myself up and catching my breath afterward.

Whatever, I guess I did the workout, which is something.

Hey, I know someone involved with this! (Someone who would not be happy if I named them.)
Digital humanities = so awesome. Back when I was a wee little nerd and went to the Folger on a field trip, we didn’t get to see the research areas. All those beautiful primary sources! Locked away! But now there is so much more available. Lovely, delicious knowledge. MMmmmm.

What tags?

For those who need to (sometimes/always) avoid posts about exercise, body image, fitness, and stuff like that, what tags should I include to help you filter?

Similarly, if you are interested in that sort of thing, is there a tag I should use to help you track it?

There are five dinosaurs in this photo. One of them is in disguise. The kids posed this, not me.
