I've been having some motivational issues lately, not only in the running department, but in life in general, again this is contributed to my sensitivity to the dwindling day-light hours, I've been working very hard on it and finally with the help of Vitamin D, B12, copious amounts of Vitamin C along with Calcium and Magnesium, I know I'm going to make it!! Thanks everyone for your kind, informative, caring and motivational emails, I truly appreciate them.
So, nuff said, I'm back running! Yes, despite the periformis and S.I. joint issues I'm getting the kicks out of the box and onto my feet. I found that you can only beat yourself up for so long and after reading this article from Active.com , I've come to conclusion that it's great to be ME!! I don't have to go out and bust a lung every time I run, I don't have to go out and run till the sun sets, I can go out and run and actually have some fun!! Hey, isn't that what it's all about?? For me, right now, it is.
I'm joining the 10K clinic at our local Running Room and I'll take the attitude of gratitude that I'm able to "just do it". It will be fun to see new runner's training for their first 10K run and it (I'm sure of it), will ground me from my lofty "I'm a marathoner" demeanour, and who by the way made me think I'm better than any one else, hmmmmmmm? (well, for those who truly know me, I'm not like that in the least, but a good slap of reality never hurts).
Between the up-coming time change and bright winter days full of cross-country skiing, skating on the canal with wonderful friends, I just know my winter will be okay this year...you never know, I might just meet that special someone too!
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
(it's good to be back)
