Hit the Wall

Yesterday around noon - I just couldn't handle 'it' anymore.  Honestly I didn't know what 'it' was - but I knew I was done - I had "hit the wall" and there was nothing left in me.  Done like Dinner.

I did something I haven't done in years and years.  I got in my car - put it on the highway, put the pedal to the metal (as the saying goes) and just started driving west. 

Fortunately my heart slowed down before I reached the west coast. So I turned the car around.

There is something about speeding along a highway watching everything fly by you with the music loud and the windows down wind blowing around to free up your mind.

When I got home I parked the car and went for a 2 mile walk - quite a contrast between speeding along a highway and slugging uphill into a wind for a mile.  Sure slows you down.
Then I finally came into the house and did some self pampering and took a long hot shower.

I'm still not sure I know what the "it" was that drove me out of the house at noon - or if I ever will BUT I do know I will keep slugging through this marathon of mine.....


  1. Hope you felt better after your long drive, walk and pampering session. Take care.
    Hugs Lindy

  2. Hope you are feeling better now, have a gentle weekend
    love Jan,xx
