My Running...In One Word
This is the topic for this week's Tuesday on the Run blog link up with My No-Guilt Life, MCM Mama Runs and Marcia's Healthy Slice. When you're done reading here, go check them out!
This is so hard because I really want to be positive about it but not sound like a conceited a-hole. But I realized, in looking over some of my recent blog posts, I've been kind of negative lately. I've been complaining a lot and I don't want to do that anymore. At least I'm going to try not to be so negative. While I know I'm human and I'm allowed to complain, I also don't want to constantly complain!! Running and training is supposed to be fun and I want to get back to a place where it is fun.
With that said, the word I'm going to use right now is STRONG. I'm not trying to be boastful or anything. I'm super excited to say that my hamstring issue seems to be much better. It's still a little tight but with all the starting and stopping of Ragnar, I expected much different. This is making me feel strong and dare-I-say ready for the races ahead of me. When only last week I was feeling like I needed a break. I think I was just down and tired and worried about my hamstring. But the reduction in mileage and care I took to rehab it really helped and now I'm feeling recharged. Yahoo!! I'm so happy! I just needed to hoot for a second. I spend so much of my days planning others' successes and right now I'm taking a moment to celebrate my own success :) Now I'm ready to tackle the next few weeks of build up before the PCT 50-miler next month! But I know that if I need to back off a bit because my hamstrings are feeling tight, I will still be ok! That's a good feeling.
What one word would you use to describe your running right now?
