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

I did it! I PRed on my Half Marathon. To read the post race report, go to Double Creek Half Marathon Post Race Report 

I was really sore after the race. So I took a couple of days off from running.

Monday, I did manage to make it to Boot Camp class.

Tuesday was my first day back to running. Lil Man and I went down to the river front and got in 5 miles. It wasn't easy, but my legs (for the most part) felt decent. I averaged a 9:33 pace with the jogger so I was pleased.

Wednesday was cross training day. I've decided that on X-training day that I want to get at least 45 minutes (an hour would be idea) each time. I really want to burn some fat. So I'm going to try to ramp up my cardio, along with making sure that I do strength training 2-3 times per week.

Thursday, I ran a couple of miles at the gym. And then I did a group fitness class. We used the Power Plates machine. I'm still not too sure about that. Although, I'm starting to feel some soreness today.

Today, I ran trails. The temps were nice. It was a really nice early morning 5 mile run. We got in some really nice hills.

I have a 9 miler on the schedule for the LR this weekend. Overall, it was a nice fitness week.
