Being busy having a busy life

A very stressful day. Been on and around from the time I woke up until about the minute after I post this and lay my head down and fall asleep. The time is close to 0.00 now. It usually is when my day’s done. There’s just so much time in a day – it’s hard to get everything you want to do to be done – at least if what you want is to do everything every day.

That’s where I am currently. Let’s call it my close to 30 years old crisis or whatever, but I feel that life is rushing forward faster than I can ever run. And there’s so much I want to do before I get too old. It’s not only training myself to become an athlete.. Also all the studies I try to do at distance.. Physics (a Bachelor – at 50% that will go on for about 6 years).. Project leading.. Work a year in China to be able to afford building a house.. Making the house intelligent by drawing the electrical plans and put in all the automation gadgets and wiring myself.. I can go on for hours.. And, oh, I’m writing a novel too.. And learning Chinese.. And did I mention I will become father for the third time probably during the coming week 😉

Like I said – it feels like time is the biggest enemy to me right now.. But you will win nothing by being unrealistic. Fill your whole day and work off all those things one by one, little by little.. And one day – well, actually hopefully never – you will feel accomplished. I think that once I do I have nothing to reach for. I like being like this.. The opposite is much worse – Doing nothing and don’t feel like doing anything.. Just sit in my couch.. Just the thought of it makes me a little depressed!

Anyway.. This blog is about running, right? Sometimes I forget 😉

After yesterdays run I felt a slight indication to shin splints. At least I think that was what it was. So today I decided to take the 1 hour run very easy. Very, very easy.. It felt great! Just being like a puppet letting those two loose things underneath just swing forward – it kind of feels like that sometimes 😀
