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

4 Miler

You'd think after all of my whining about not being able to run, that the idea of getting up to run 4 miles today would be the best feeling in the world... NOT. I started bargaining with myself. I could get up later and try to do it at the gym (but I knew that wouldn't happen because I needed to get the last of the Christmas shopping done). Or, I could just totally skip today and do it tomorrow (but I need to run 4 on Sunday and wanted 2 days of rest in between). Finally, I got myself up and downstairs to the basement to get on the treadmill.

Finally about 3 miles in and yes it took 3 miles before I was glad that I was doing the 4 mile run, I felt a sense of accomplishment for getting up and running today.

The foot... well... it didn't really start hurting until about 3.5 miles and I don't want to say hurt or pain.. but more uncomfortable/twinges/pulling/slight burning in the arch. I stretched and iced and it's a little tender to the touch now on the outside of the foot where the tendonitis is bothering me. I suppose I should ice it again.

Rest day tomorrow and Saturday, and then I'm hoping for a 4 mile run outside on Sunday.
