I'm a firm believer in the power of running for stress relief. But something happened that made me wonder:
'Can you be too stressed to run?'
Here's what happened. I was doing the school run, running as usual. When we passed a wooded area I saw it: a red cat. It was quite dead. And it looked júst like our red cat. So I was quite devastated, thinking our cat was lying dead in the woods.
I had my son with me, so I pretended everything was fine. But I felt really anxious and stressed out. So much so that it became impossible for me to run, and I had to slow down to a walk. I was in fact too stressed to run.
But how can that be? Because running is a natural response to stress, running should have felt like the natural thing to do.
I just don't understand it.
So I thought I'ld blog about it, and ask you guys.
Have you ever been too stressed to run?
