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 sore, and I’m getting more sore as the day goes on. But it’s a good feeling. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to do it - the 11 mile run yesterday, I’ve been having stomach issues when running the longer distances. I tried the stomach aid last weekend on my 9 mile run. It helped but didn’t solve the problem. But yesterday, I used the stomach aid and I carried water with me. I’ve been running the long runs without drinking any water. I know I know. So yesterday, I carried water with me. Usually once I take one sip, I’m in trouble. But yesterday I drank probably 8 ounces during a 2 hour run. It was a good ‘start’. I don’t want to use the stomach medicine every time I run a long distance, but I need to use it on my longer runs to decide how much to take and when before I run the half marathon.

I believe I’m doing to treat myself to a sports pedi for making the distance yesterday. It was tough, but I did it.
