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.

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.
