i need to run :: its good for me :: it helps me.
these girls talk about The Zone. The zone, when you find the rhythm and you zone out as you exercise. the mind clears of all thoughts as the steady pace of your runners hit the ground. its almost trance like.
once i get over the first 2 km then the zoning out starts, the mind clears, the ideas come as well as the clearer thoughts.
its my time.
life is hard at the minute and this is my precious time for me, where i can sort out all i feel and think.
a lot of people around me don't get it, even those close to me as to why i exercise and run. they make statements like "you are thin enough", "why do you need to exercise?" "what do you waste your time doing that for?" but they don't get it. the need for space, the need for clarity, the need to evaluate whats good in my life, the need to sort through all the s*** you hear from people that are supposed to care. as well as that its something for me that i can do and do well. that i can individually challenge myself and push myself. the me time where i don't have to worry about anyone else in the world except for me. its also the creative ideas that come.
so my trusty old runners are my best friend and my armour at the minute, its the only constant. they don't judge.
