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.
As I grow older with my family, I realize that life is constantly changing. I am constantly changing. And learning to embrace the change definitely makes for an easier transition. For probably the first time in my life, I am

Ready to run?

Well who knew that doing planks and mountain climbers was the worst possible thing I could have done on Saturday. DR said I could have gone out and run hard sprints and it would have been the same stress on my broken foot. Ooops... But told me to judge my pain level. He said I'm not ready to out and just start running (probably need a couple more weeks) but that I could powerwalk with some running thrown in and judge how I am doing by how I feel the following morning. In other words, if it hurts, I did too much. I'm not ready and back off. He told me that I was going to have to use common sense with my pain level and use it as a tool to know how much or how little to do. My foot is still currently throbbing from Saturday, so no exercise today. .maybe tomorrow? :)
