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.

Restless Mind = Restless Body

Ever have those days where you just couldn't get your mind to settle down? That was me today. I ran my 12 miles yesterday, and I knew that today was a rest day. In fact, yesterday I commented that I was SOOOOOO glad today was a rest day.

Well you know what? I just couldn't 'rest' today. My mind is all over the place. I considered a run, but really, my running legs need a break, especially with my calf/Achilles or whatever it is that's sore.

Instead, I pulled out the rusty bike my Hubby found. The seat is torn, the tires were flat, and the handle bars aren't even. But Hubby put some air in the tires and put some oil on the bike chain for me. And off I went.

I've mentioned before how stationary bikes/spin class/etc is really difficult for me. Riding my bike today proved to be the same tough workout. It was fun though to get out, sweat, and clear my mind a bit.

I got in 6 miles in about 32 minutes. I know - not fast. But my legs were jello when I got off.

Not too bad for a 'rest' day. :)
