Instead, I decided to take more time with these guys, in this place.
Sometimes it's easy to get caught up in the philosophy of consistency. It's easy to convince yourself it's most important to just show up. But I reached a point where I could no longer simply show up. Where I just needed a few moments of pause.
So I paused. I enjoyed letting my muscles heal. I enjoyed staying up a little later, and sleeping in past 5:30. I enjoyed a few extra snuggles.
And this week, I am so happy to be back in my routine, and pushing towards my next goal: A 34 mile bike ride on June 3. Guess what? It's been a long time since I was on my bike.
I see sore butts a plenty in my near future.
