I want to run so badly! My brain is craving it, but my body doesn’t appear to be ready yet. Today was going to be a rest day, but my quad feels better so I couldn’t think of a reason to resist the urge to head to the track. It’s cold outside, but I warmed up pretty quickly. And it felt amazing.
After several months of not giving this 100%, I’m reminded that I feel so much better when I’m giving it my all. And I put it all out there on the track today. I walked then jogged then walked then jogged for a couple of miles. And I was surprised to see that I can jog almost all the way around the track without stopping. I realize that it’s not far, but it will be an accomplishment for me when I can do it.
I pushed myself today, and I feel good about it. I feel like the happy girl who loves to eat cucumbers, every kind of squash and lean meats while rambling about how good it feels to workout is back. She was always here, but she’s making herself visible again. And it feels so good.
