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

It's More Than A Goal

I joined Coach Jenny's Holiday Challenge last week. I didn't quite meet my goal that I had set, but I was ok with that since I ran a race on Sunday (My First Relay).

This week I'm also struggling to meet my fitness goals. I was at Lil Man's school a couple of days, and lack of motivation due to a sore throat kept me from getting to the pool which left me a couple of miles short. I also missed yoga... that being said, I'm about 5.5 miles (running and cross-training combined) short of my goal this week. But it doesn't end until Sunday night - so technically I still might be able to meet it my goal if everyone (aka Lil Man) cooperates.

But this week, my car was in the shop - and I was REALLY wanting ice cream. What's a girl to do? Well, I ran / walked 4 miles for this beauty.



And in case you wondering, yes it was worth it! I will say that the 2 miles there was easy peasy.
The 2 miles back were a little more difficult. I was tired and the hills were definitely getting to me.

I was also able to get in a short run after being at Lil Man's school this week.



And, I got in one strength training workout (disappointed that it's only been one workout so far this week. But I still tend to ditch the strength training when I'm in a time crunch. I'm working on it though!)

And I made it to my regular spin class on Friday. I love that class. It's always a challenge, and I'm always soaked in sweat when it's over.



But I said all of that to simply say this... remember the journey. Sometimes I get so focused on the end result - where I want to be - instead of cherishing where I am. I believe that it's the lessons along the way that are the most important.

Keep moving forward, love who you are where you are, and just be you.
