So, being the smart runner I am, I got up this morning and met my running buddy at 5:30 this morning for another run. SOMEONE HELP ME!!!
Well, as you could guess, it's hurting quite a bit again now!
Here is the REAL issue... I am ADDICTED!
Seriously, I am. and so are you.
If I take more than a day or two off running, I sit around feeling fat, sluggish and like a real bum. Stop laughing, SO DO YOU! You know you do!
I take a day off to lift weights, and after I am finished, want SO badly to head out for a run too! Nothing else makes me feel this way.
So what to do? I have NO idea!!
The best I think I can hope for is to continue to struggle with this, knowing I need to take a few days off and not run 24X7. I KNOW lifting is good for me, maybe JUST as good as running. I KNOW taking a day off here and there is good for me, maybe better than running so often!
It's not like any of this is new to me. I've been doing this for 25 years. It's just that the older I get, the louder my body screams at me!
So, unless one of you has the magic answer for me, I'll just continue to try to talk myself into doing what I know is best for me, and sit down at the computer every now and then and vent.
Everyone have a PERFECT Thanksgiving!!
