Ugh, slow morning.
I thought it was the reasonably unhealthy splurge meal last night, but I was just too in my head about class beginning today to get in a decent flow.
Mostly, I rolled around the skatepark thinking, talking out loud to prepare my introduction (want to sound cool, you know), and imagining how the semester will play out.
Tricks were generally off the table as I wasn’t focused on my form and balance.
I found some empty space, some moments of a clear head, as I pumped around the park, trying to complete a full circle as many times as possible. It seems the exertion was distraction enough.
As my legs burned, my mind settled. Well, a little.
