It felt SO good to run today, the cool 32 degree air filling my lungs, the feeling of my feet hitting the pavement. As I finished the run I told my husband, “I really do love to run. A LOT”. I was picturing myself running for 100 miles/week, strong, efficient, fast. Ahhh, what a beautiful image.
Granted – even if I’m able to jump back into running now (we’ll see how the achilles feels tomorrow) – 100 mile weeks won’t happen for a very, very long time. And I know that when they do, I won’t appreciate every mile, every second, every breath like I did tonight. But, it’s fun to imagine being able to train a lot again.
So, now on to the elliptical for the evening and then finishing up with a little P90x. All with a smile on my face!
