I came across this video on running and have to share it because it says so well things I’ve figured out over the past three years of running.
I’ve been thinking a lot about it during the last three weeks as I haven’t been able to run. My stress level has risen, and headaches have returned along with my red eyes at the end of each day.
I was pretty mad when I had to stop running because it had become the best part of my day. For four to five miles every morning, I didn’t think about a single thing. Without that, I’ve not been myself, but as I wrote before I am appreciative of the time to reevaluate things without running. It’s been a cleanse of many things.
And I’m happiest to say that I was able to run twice this week and with all of the leg-strengthening exercises, I’ve eased into an easy under 10-minute mile. So, all in all it has been a blessing in disguise.
Then, I came across this tonight–a talk by Christopher McDougall.
