Wednesday nights are kind of nice with no obligations. Wanted to go out for beers, but stayed in and ate healthy and played with the dog, went to sleep early. Felt nice and relaxing for a change.

Ran a 13-mile trail race yesterday...was so hot! Hard run, lot of walking. Then beers over football. Almost got in a fight at the bar with a guy who called me a 'f-ing idiot'. Bothered me a lot...

Really feeling that I ate too much and drank too much this weekend...again. And I didn't get groceries, so no food for lunch. Blah...stressing over time and getting things done...feeling very anxious this morning in general.

Went to bed last night feeling sad and self-pitying. Woke up this morning feeling that even more. Plus anxiety bubbling below the surface. Very short on patience this morning with dog...
Jeff M
7d ·

It's not the dog's fault he's anxious around other dogs, but we didn't get our walk this morning because he kept pulling and tripping me with neighbor out with their dogs. I feel bad about lack of patience...

Jeff M
7d ·

I used to have this mantra I'd say: When do I get to be happy? I once wrote it probably thousands of times in a notebook during a big depressive period. That was a decade or two ago. I'm still asking myself that...

Jeff M
7d ·

I don't understand why other people get to be happy and have caring relationships with friends and loved ones and I don't. What is it about me? I can't even believe anymore that it will change or that I have to be patient...

Jeff M
7d ·

It won't change... I've lived long enough to know that. Most of the time, I'm not unhappy per se. I've gotten pretty good at coping. But why not me? Am I selfish for just wanting to care about someone and have someone care about me?

Jeff M
7d ·

I'm not even saying 'love'... I just want someone to want me around and want to listen to what I say and want me to listen to them. Someone who cares about me and who I care about. A good friendship even... Just some way to not...

Jeff M
7d ·

...be alone all the time. We're meant to be social people. Why not me? Blah blah same old. I've been saying this and asking this for 30 years now. Pathetic.

Jeff M

I like hills. My big race last month was tons of hills...But my legs are surprisingly sore after just 2 miles on the treadmill walking fast uphill. Weird. Still recovering, I think... Sorry about your hip, John. Hope you're stretching/rolling it!

Party was fun Saturday, but I hate seeing grown adults get so drunk. Makes me angry. Feeling pretty good this morning. Trying to focus on strength and improvement for rest of this year...
Jeff M
10 Sep 2018 ·

Don't want to just train for races. Want to be healthier and stronger. Trying to reframe my focus...keep training so I can run well and run better and stronger, but also feel better the rest of the time too.

Jeff M
10 Sep 2018 ·

Been thinking a lot about strength and how hard it is to maintain improvement and focus on bettering myself for the long run. Too easy to resort to quick fixes, like food or beer, to improve mood.

Jeff M
10 Sep 2018 ·

Want to drink less beer...but I don't need to cut it out of my life. I enjoy it. Don't have to cut out good food either. Just less of it. Be healthy the rest of the time.

You obviously train for a healthier body every time you run, not just for races. Give yourself some credit! You kick a**!
