Getting Back At It Run

Sunday morning came with cloudiness and rain. Even though it was yucky out I decided it was now or never to get back out there and get a run in. It was a little slow going but it felt good to get back out there.

I was feeling a little down on myself over the few days. I guess I am getting scared that I was starting to slip back into my old self sabotaging and overly critical ways and that the run would help get rid of some of that. Luckily it worked. I felt calm and positive for the rest of the day.

At least now I see it when I start to back slide towards my own self negativity. That is when I am most vulnerable to depression. So for now I am going to be thankful. Thankful for the opportunity and ability to run and to see when it is starting to go sideways. I definitely need to keep on top of the running for my own sanity sake.

Do you recognize when you are starting to backslide into depression? What you do find helps pull you out?
