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

Catch Up Since Last Post

Since my last post, my foot is healing (although I still have pain). I started working with a personal trainer to try to help me get toned, and lose the baby weight. I am close (about 4 pounds that I keep fluctuating back and forth). I have an upcoming race, and now have a head cold so I had to skip training this week. I just hope that once my training sessions end that I will be dedicated enough to continue strength training on my own. 

My running is coming along. I'm still having pain in my foot, so I went back to the DR for a check up just to make sure it was ok. He said I would probably have pain for at least 6 months to a year, but I could run through it if I wanted. Basically that was what I needed to hear. I have to be cautious and not overdo it, but I'm slowly getting some base miles again. I ran 17 miles this last week. 

I am doing the Hershey 10K this weekend. I'm excited and nervous and REALLY hoping I get over this head cold soon. So this week is a light week. I am planning on running a couple of 2 mile runs, then rest until the 10K. 

After the race this weekend, I hope to get into a routine with running and strength training so that I can reach my goal of getting stronger and leaner.
