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

Nice!

I can't lie, that felt great! Well, yeah I still had a little pain in my arch. It feels more like a tugging, pulling, burning sensation. It started easing up a little around .75 mile. I'm not sure if it was hurting less or if the endorphins were kicking in and I was ignoring it.

I did NOT want to stop at 1 mile. I almost kept going, but I listened to the nagging voice in my head that I had to be smart and stop. So I stopped at a mile. I FINALLY broke a light sweat while running. It's been over 3 weeks since I've been able to do that. It felt great.

I'm currently icing the foot.

My plan is to rest tomorrow (maybe do the rowing machine at the gym depending on how my day is going). And run 2 miles on Tuesday.

2 on Tuesday has a ring to it doesn't it? ;)

Unless the pain gets worse as the day goes on.

So here's to hoping that there isn't any more pain as the day goes on.
