I definitely hit a wall after Endure24, it’s been a case of rebuilding since then!
The highs, lows, emotions, grit, heart, determination, fear, pain, that goes in to running 24 hours eventually takes it toll. When the highs subside, you’re going to fall.
The battle I’m having with my OCD and the Intrusive thoughts that surround it, seem more and more stupid as time goes on. I’m scared, but nowhere near as scared as I used to be. Anxiety is always there, it’s tiring, but depression can’t catch me. I won’t let it.
I think I’m a little stronger now, the struggle is real, it’s brutal! But.. I’m making steps, small steps to a better life, for me and everyone around me. When times are hard I’ve just got to keep the faith, we all do!
I’m looking forward to getting back to running club tonight with Farsley Flyers. It’s been a pretty long and lonely stint of solo runs lately- But truthfully, If that what it takes to beat the day, it’s worth every mile!
