The last couple of days I’ve been feeling really low. I guess it could be as simple as a crappy ass PMS creeping into me but I know one thing.. I DO NOT like this. Last week I felt so full of energy and I really felt like I could do whatever. In my thoughts like all the time was: “BRING IT ON!”.
And then.. Completely different. I got a workout done (20 min yoga+30 min strength workout) yesterday and I was planning to go for a run, but when I was ready to go it was all dark (and I’m not running during the dark hours due to a lot of sketchy meth addicts in the area). So I had to wait with my planned run until this morning.. And when I started running this morning… I felt my energy level raising right away and my thoughts/emotions just totally gathered. Coming back from my 5,2K run I felt like a new person.
I have been going to therapy earlier in my life, but honestly, there’s NOTHING like a run to cheer me up! It’s my time to “relax”, to get my emotions together and to feel strong. So here I am, a few hours later, smiling and thinking “BRING IT ON!” again.
Q: How does your running affect your mood? Do you have any other tricks to get out of feeling sad/angry/whatever?
