I would have never thought that running could be so peaceful, it may sound weird but it is and after much pondering I think that I might have figured out why.
The one minded singularity of the end result. The peaceful serenity of pounding one foot in front of another for a certain amount of time.
I know that I’m going to be running for the next 30 minutes, and at the end of that 30 mintues it’s going to be over until the next time.
I can see the goal and end result is clear and concise.
It is probably why i’m so bad at school 😉
I suppose that the end result is there and I can perceive it but I can never see it clearly which makes it harder to have it in the present.
Even though I have tried to break it down into smaller goals and finish line is always in the back of your mind.
Considering all the other exciting events/parties/things to do in the mean time it just makes reaching my final stage even harder.
Is it possible that striving for perfection isn’t the way to go (for me anyway), in terms of economics there is a opportunity cost that is lost all the time.
Maybe it truely is the journey that matters and not the end result, and the only way to go is to keep one foot in front of the other and stop stressing and stop loosing sleep and feeling like crap everyday and try to enjoy life as it is.
Eventually if that one foot does actually stay infront of the other and occasionally jump when I have to or want to, I’ll make it to that end point where ever that is.
