When I blog, I usually pretty much stick to talking about running. So the fact that I’m not running much right now leaves me with, what I feel like, little to blog about. I have tried to run and usually it just turns into a walk. Now that I’ve accepted that it has become much easier to do and I enjoy it more, but I still really miss running. I have continued to feel pretty sick, so I know I made the right decision about Boston, which I’m glad about. I was kind of worried I’d wake up one day and feel completely normal and have a lot of regrets, but that hasn’t happened at all. At the same time, it has been hard to keep getting the emails and seeing all the excitement leading up to the race.
I still get quite a big dose of running by coaching the high schoolers daily, but I miss going out and just being able to do a 3-6 miler in the mornings or evenings. I have come to realize that it was really ‘me’ time. I got to sort out my thoughts, enjoy the weather, and just get lost in the area I was running in. I keep hoping to feel better to try to go to the gym, or try to run more, but I just always get set back with feeling sick, or getting a headache, or right now I’m dealing with a cold I’ve had for two weeks and then I can’t make it. I’m going to try to go to the gym this week and try going on the elliptical and see how I do on that.
B and I had a great Easter though. Saturday we went to church and had a big dinner at his parents house and then on Sunday he worked so I went down to the station to see him for a while. It was a great day and though I have this darn cold, we’ve been having such nice weather and it was good to see our families. So that’s what is up with my exciting, non running filled life. Without running there isn’t AS much to talk about here on the blog… but I’m finding a new normal and I’m sure I’ll have more to post about soon! :)
