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

Dietary Changes?

Seeing myself in a sports bra today re-enforced the thought that I need to make some changes... dietary changes that is. And getting a little 'nudge', ok more like a  straight-up text from my trainer this past week saying that I needed to make some dietary changes also got me to thinking. Can my nutrition (or lack there of) really make that much difference when it comes to my training performance? And according to my trainer, the answer is yes, it really can.

And I have to say, I didn't immediately jump on board. Because the truth is, I've tried in the past with very little success. So 'getting a plan' and 'following a plan' are two different things. And I was talking it over with Hubby and he said something that stuck with me "How committed are you?"

Wow, a little light bulb went on. How committed are you? And even then I still didn't jump on board, because truthfully, I'm afraid of failure. But after a night's sleep, some more questions answered from my trainer, and thinking about how committed I am, I decided to work on nutrition along side my marathon running plan.

So for the next week or so, I'm tracking everything that I eat and sending it to my trainer. She will then give me a nutrition plan along side my marathon plan.

All of this will begin in July. Guess it's about to get real!

  1. Amy- I am in the same boat. I have been working on my eating/nutrition for the past month. I am heading into marathon training and want to continue. I love the small, innocent and potent question from your husband. I have a similar exchange from my wife. It is very motivating and thanks for posting!
