Your Body Is A Gift

It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...

But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis. In that moment it didn't take a genius to figure out that my body is really dealing with a lot of inflammation. And that I had been eating more for fun than for healing and nutrition.

Recap of Last 10 Miler

We had family in over the weekend, and I'm just not getting a chance to catch up.

Friday I ran a 10 miler (solo). Lately I've been running my long runs with my running buddy, but she was running 16 on Saturday. I wanted to get in a 12 mile run and my scheduled worked out best to run on Friday.

As you can guess, I only ran 10 instead of 12, but it was a good solid 10 and I was pleased with it. I had stomach issues (since I had eat the wrong foods prior to the run). So I wasn't surprised to find myself in need of relief around 4-5 miles into the run.

But ovberall it was a decent solid run. I had planned to run the following day, but instead went on a 6 mile hike with my sister-in-law on the Appalachian Trail. It was a nice workout. Then the following day, we had other plans so I still wasn't able to run.

I did however get a 3 mile run in today on the treadmill. This week is my first 18 miler (gulp) . So I am definitely hoping for a good running week.

The Half is fast approaching!
