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

Gym

I finally made it to the gym yesterday. It was the first time in months. Between surgery, and the messed up foot, I've been paying a gym membership that hasn't been used.

So I loaded up Lil Man and to the gym we went. I wasn't sure how he'd do since it's been so long. But he did great.

Me? Well rowing in front of of the treadmills wasn't fun, especially since I wanted to be on the treadmill. But I realized very quick that rowing wasn't easy. Granted, I can't really compare it to a great run, but it was a tough work out.

I'm feeling it today. I'm sore, but in a good way.

I also went to boot camp last night which is contributing to my soreness.

Today was a rest day partially because we got a little snow, but also because I'm sore. I don't want to over do it.

I plan to take the boot off this weekend and run a half mile. HOPING for no pain after the run. I am registered for a 5K on the 9th of Dec. to run with a friend who is running her first 5K. I'm really hoping I can do it with her.

Fingers crossed my foot will be MUCH better this weekend than last.
