Whatever your happy place is, its good to be there whenever possible. After continuing to work into the late hours last night (till 11 pm), all I could think of was, find your happy place. While I didn't find it like Happy did, I knew that I could have some good reflections on my happy place.
While on a run this morning, I thought about some of the requirements for things that should be in my happy place. Here are some of the random thoughts that came through my mind as I pondered (mind you, this was during a workout) that would be in my happy place:
- A body of water
- Bike porn to look at
- No wind to speak of, unless it is always a tailwind
- Special needs tables with my favorite endurance foods at every mile
- Endless paved trails without idiots
I think I found my happy place this morning. Of those 7 items listed, I had 5 of them on my run. Unfortunately, there were no cheerleaders to speak of, only Army personnel on their training runs. And there was also no special needs table, but beggars can't be choosers I guess. What I have learned from this is that I need to get off my butt more often in the morning to go on my runs. It is so relaxing and puts my mind at ease.
Now its back to the chaos of work, but at least I have a visual of my happy place in case I need to refer back to it!
