It is as simple as that.
Running has become an activity that I crave. I think about it when I am not running, I think sbout it when I can’t sleep. I really enjoy it. At first I had to learn to like it. Now I can truly say that I love it. I have been running through all of the seasons and I love the time outdoors. I am so proud of what I have trained my body to do. I didn’t know I was capable of pushing myself to go as far as I have and now it doesn’t feel too much like pushing. It is s good push. I look forward to seeing how far i go. I heard in a podcast that anyone can run a marathon and indo believe that is true for me.
Being outdoors, smelling the air, seeing the change in seasons is therapeutic. I have a nice route that I run and see some people regularly walking or in their yards and we say hello. I love the time alone with myself.
My runs this week are much shorter according to the training plan. I miss the long runs but this is a good time for the shorter runs. My lower leg bones hurt so this is a time for healing and stretching to get stronger for my upcoming 9.5 mile run. I am looking forward to it.
