I do my best thinking while running, which is ONE of the reasons why I don’t listen to music during a run. While I was running this morning I began thinking about some things that I already knew but that really hit home today.
Today was my first day back running after a week off. As I was plodding along, and I do mean PLODDING, I began to think about how quickly the body forgets. My legs did not want to do what I wanted them to do. My mind wanted them to go quicker and ya that wasn’t happening! And I have a little theory that fibromyalgia sufferers just may have a harder time with this muscle memory thing, but that is just my humble opinion.
And what a difference what you put in your body makes! Of course, I know this. But alas my friends, I did not eat the best during my week off. Let us just say it was not ALL super clean. Had my eating been spot on during my recovery week, the plodding might have been a bit faster this a.m. In fact, I’m sure it would have been. But I’m not beating myself up. I had a semi-relaxed week, continued working out, ate 75% clean and now I’m back at it. Today was the start of my half marathon training and the beginning of my plant based diet. I am looking forward to re-evaluating in a month to see where I’m at! We are all a work in progress!
