This week has turned out to be a pretty hard week of training. I’m in St. Thomas and the island is extremly hilly and the roads do not have shoulders so it is difficult to find a place to run. I’ll have all the updates in my weekly blog on Monday.
I have been taking lots of pictures here and it got me thinking about a few things. How much I have changed in the last year. Running has become a part of my life that I didn’t realize I rely on so much. Since I haven’t been able to run the way I want it is bothering me. Running really is an outlet and a time to clear my mind. I feel like I have been doing much more technical running and my focus needs to stay on that, instead of decompressing the day. I’ll be glad to get back to a regular running routine!
I mentioned pictures ealier; a picture from the memories feature on FB popped up this week and it was odd to see how much I have changed in the last year. I’ve lost about 25 lbs. I almost don’t look like the same person. A year ago I wasn’t eating very healthy and running wasn’t really a part of my life. I had given up any sort of regimine. In October of last year I made a commitment to running and becoming a vegetarian, both have proven to be great experiences. While I do think the running streak will come to an end after 365 days, I do not forsee me going back to eating meat. I feel so much better and healthier!
It is odd that to think when people ask, “What’s new” I usually say not much. Everyday seems the same but looking back a year everything has changed. (I’m pretty sure that is a quote from someone else, just not sure who)
That was a bit random and short, but that is me thinking out loud this week. Plus I’m pretty tired from a long day.
How have you changed in the last year?
