I am thrilled to say that I put another 3.26 miles in the recovery bank. I did a run/walk at a faster pace today, and seemingly, I ran more of the block than on Wednesday. I am simply thrilled to be on the streets.
I was reflecting on the last 5 years of running this town, and on the many miles I gutted out, or ran with bliss. Because in running, it’s not “either-or” …it’s all of the above. You can be running happy, then feel a pull or a twinge or see a car or trip. Running is the ultimate roller coaster…a fast and fun ride at times.
I’m on the recovery path. Today, weird things hurt: my lower back, my inner thighs. Places on my body that have been under-trained in the last 14 weeks of casted blues. I was a little winded, and reminded myself that I had to slow down.
It’s only 6.37 miles. But August? It’s a “win”.
