Talking it through

Another short run today…

…and then I headed to a counselling appointment, which was a bit of a short notice thing this week. I’d got onto the waiting list for talking therapy last summer, as after the first few months of sobriety I was starting to feel as though I was finally starting to get my thoughts about my mental health in order to the point that counselling would be useful. However, I was on the list for so long that I’d semi-forgotten about it/assumed that I’d been taken off it for some reason, so it was a surprise earlier this week when they called me to make an appointment! I felt a bit unfocused in the session today as I didn’t really know where to start, but I’m going to make a lot of notes before the next one in order to make the most of the treatment, as you only have a limited number of sessions.

I spent the afternoon finishing off this week’s day job work, meaning that the decks are clear for next week yet again! Looking forward to another good weekend of running – I’ve got a new parkrun to try out tomorrow, and a long run in the stormy weather that’s due on Sunday (that one might not be so pleasant, but it’s all part of marathon training).
