1t one to arrive, last one to leave = long days
Being decently organized (but far from perfect) can help us anticipate challenging days in which exercise will become much more difficult to do.

and then the return to frequent travel – enjoyed the “routine” while it lasted
Again a friend asked, “Did you run this morning?”
“No, today is another

Play the hand we’re dealt, sage advice. Sometimes we can stumble upon a random break leading to a discovery, a breakthrough, or simply an overdue reminder.

The good news is I planned for this – active rest. Foresaw a tight turnaround and planned to not run this morning. Huge relief to not have to feel guilt for not exercising – on top of the drain from only three hours sleep.
