Embracing The Changes In Life

Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

I’m trying to get mentally prepared for my 8 mile run tomorrow. I plan to go to work and work for a few hours, then go run 8 miles on an extended lunch break, and then come back to work. I’ve mapped out my route. This route should be flat so hopefully it will be a little easier than the hilly route that I ran on Sunday. I don’t normally run my ‘long’ run on a week day, but it’s supposed to rain all weekend. It’s raining now. I hope the forecast is correct for tomorrow because it is supposed to be mostly sunny and in the 60’s.

I remember when I ran my first 4 miles alone. I wasn’t sure if I could do it. Now, I’m attempting to run my second 8 mile run. It’s nice to finally see some progress.

  1. Good luck and congrats on your progress. I really like reading about your progress because I hope to be where you are at soon. I'm running my first 4 miler this weekend (hopefully, my shin has been bothering me) and totally looking forward to completing it.
