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.

How do I feel about it? I feel liberated. I feel like stepping outside of the model of runner to something bigger. Because I've said it before, and I will say it again, I am more than just a runner.

Hot & Humid

Not my best run. First of all I wasn't mentally into it today. I knew it was going to be hot and humid. But I changed clothes, strapped on the belt with the water bottles and took off. I was barely a half mile into it and wanted to stop already. In fact, I think I did stop for water. But I trudged on. I stopped several times for water which also stopped the clock. So the 4 miles in 39:11 is misleading. Oh well, I suppose I got a decent work out in. I plan to get one more run in this week, and then I will run the 5K this weekend. Taking off last week has sort of unnerved me a little. I don't feel very prepared. I do plan to swim a couple of times this week along with strength training and some yoga. I'm glad I got out there today. Even though my run was 'blah' I still did it.
