Gosh I almost broke up with running this morning……….Almost.
Running and I have not been connecting lately. Runs don’t feel so great. The excitement of the run has been waning and honestly sometimes I think of doing other things
Running has also been causing me some aches and pains which I need to fix.
But this morning, regardless of all of that I laced up my shoes and put on my new compression socks and ran a little over 6 miles by myself and then met my friend Marianna for another 6 or so miles for a total of a little over 13 miles.
Many firsts that are exciting. Nothing like running a half for the first time just to see what you will feel like. Nothing like wondering how fast you can go in a 5K. Nothing like wondering how far you can push your body by racing consecutive days.
Lots of fun firsts.
And now running has gotten a bit humdrum. I know what it feels like to race a half-now I am too worried about my pace and having to PR.
So as I was running I realized I have got to back up a bit and remember why Running and I fell in love in the first place.
