I made it two weeks. No nothing. No running. No cross training. Um. No sanity. HA! But tomorrow all that changes! Back to the gym I go to begin getting my life back.
I still can’t run or do any leg work but I’ve learned that being a better runner is an all over body experience. At least for me. All roads lead back to running for me. I don’t just work out. I’m not just a gym goer. In fact I hate the gym. Blah. Everything I do physically has a purpose and has since I decided I wanted to run more seriously 9 long years ago. I want to be the best runner I can be. Period. End of story.
This time off has not been pleasant. My sleep is off. I’m eating like crazy. And I just don’t feel like myself. But I’ve really tried to focus on the positive things. Like all the other things I do, this rest is only going to make me a stronger and healthier runner. A runner more able, and determined, to make her dreams come true.
You see, this time my dreams are kinda HUGE. Again, at least for me. I know it might take some time and a whole lotta effort to figure it all out. But. I. Am. Ready.
This time there is no TRY … it’s just DO. I want this. Badly. I am excited to start becoming the runner I need to be to chase my dreams. I know how blessed I am to have the opportunity to begin this journey. And hopefully, in just a few more weeks, the healthy legs I need to get to where I want to go.
Well, I hope you all have a day where you look forward to getting started!!!
