Exercise...I have almost an uncomfortable feeling today that I should go out for a run, because I haven't all week. This uncomfortable feeling makes me suspicious. It has been a very busy and stressful week, I haven't slept very well, I have been upset about the dissertation, I have been working. A run could help med relax.....or it could bring on the stress. Cycling home from work I felt my typical "stress" tension around my ribcage, and I must convince myself that the very best for my body is to relax. I have been cycling today, and will cycle more later. I have done housework and I have deserved to focus on relaxing.
I sometimes find it hard to allow myself to relax, and I know that I need to get better at this before I push myself too far. At the same time, I don't need to let go of exercising. Being active is good, but there is no need to strive for more than I can handle at the time being.
And it is after all FRIDAY! Going to see my lovely, beautiful friend Maria and spend the evening cooking dinner watching a film or two, and talk about everything between heaven and earth. Looking forward to a very nice evening :-)
