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.

Sick

So I'm sick - waah, waah, waah. I felt it coming on Friday night and tried to tell myself that I was just tired. I wasn't sick. Saturday morning rolled around and I couldn't deny it.

I still got my 8 mile run in - whether that was smart or not - who knows? But mentally I felt better.

Today was another 8 mile run but I chose to rest. I was going to make today a total rest day, but I ate cheese french fries for lunch. So I got on the dreadmill while Lil Man napped. I ran a pace run for 4 miles. It felt pretty good.

I can tell that I need to stretch as my left calf was sore. I'll try to work stretching and some easy yoga moves into my afternoon plans.

5 more days after today and then it is race day.
