I’ve started running again. Actually, I started in running in March when, for the first time in my life, I had a required hour long lunch break and no idea how to spend it. I pulled on my running shoes one fine afternoon and went for a run. Just like that, I was once again a runner.
After a second run in my old running shoes it was clear I needed a new pair (my ankles were killing me!). I headed to my local running store (Big River Running, for those in the St. Louis area) and had a fitting done. I ended up purchasing a pair of Adidas, which was confusing but also very fortunate. My shoes, the Adidas Supernova Glide 7, are the most comfortable pair of running shoes I’ve ever owned. I’ll do a review on them in the future.
Since I started running with my new shoes in March I’ve put nearly 130 miles on them! That’s a huge accomplishment for me, as I was never someone who ran regularly. A few weeks ago I decided to begin training for a 10k happening in October – the GO! St. Louis Halloween 10k. Having a goal has already motivated me! I ran four miles this week, the most I’ve run since before my wedding and honeymoon, when I fell off the running horse for a good six weeks.
Since I’m running again I figured I might as well blog about it. I think it will help keep me accountable and interested in continuing my running journey.
In addition to running, I’ve also started practicing yoga again. A coworker of mine recently earner her yoga teacher certification, and she does free classes twice a week. While I’ve realized I’m not flexible at all, I’ve really enjoyed starting my practice again. I feel exhausted but at peace after every class. I forgot how much yoga really helps center me.
Thanks for taking the time to read, folks. I plan to start blogging somewhat regularly again and hope you enjoy my posts!
