Daily Note

Not an impressive long run by any means, and a very bad week in volume. Hard to want to give the same effort after Friday's result. I've thought a lot about whether I was overreacting or overfeeling and I don't think it was an overreach. Was once told that the word 'process' wasn't delegated to any amount of time in days or seasons and that it was never ending. A part of me honestly feels like I deserve to run well after the years I've put in, and the honest efforts have earned me that right. I know that's not true, but it's a difficult pill to swallow for a lot of runners I think. It's probably the thing I want most right now and I might never get it. I think for the first time instead of fighting that idea (which has kept me going for so long) I'm accepting it and it feels like the death of a dream that I've had for awhile
