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

Really Starting To Love These Trails

Wow, this week has flown by for me. I think I'm playing catch-up from the holiday weekend. And honestly, I haven't caught up! My house is a wreck at the moment, but I've kept out with my workouts this week ;)

Monday - A quick 2 miler and I have to say that I was pleased that the first mile was 8:34 and the second was 8:28. I also did Boot Camp class that evening.

Tuesday - a very hilly 6 mile run. The pace was slower than I wanted (10:38), but I was tired mentally and physically so I'm please that I got through this run.

Wednesday - 10 minutes on the stationary bike and I said forget this. So I went to Body Blast class at the gym. Lunges, squats, planks, upper body work, and a little shy of an hour later, I was drenched in sweat.

Thursday - I was feeling the class from yesterday. My left calf is really sore. But I got through a 4 mile run with Lil Man in the jogger.

Friday - Trail run Friday.. woo hoo. I'm getting more and more into this trail running. In fact, I'm considering signing up for a trail run in August. I haven't made my mind up just yet. But today's run was another great hilly run. And I loved every minute of it!

    1. That's one reason why I won't run them alone. I'm totally afraid I'll get lost!
