As you know I’ve been running forever (since 1969) and I love it! However,
balancing injuries with that runner’s high made me think about which meant more to me – a lifetime of running or a few years of racing/training bliss.
Thinking that way I started walking every other day which, in the beginning felt really stupid when I could be running. But now, uninjured and doing both walking and running gives me most of what I need and I remain uninjured!
Being able to get out every day and move provides mental solace that can’t be denied. I NEED my time moving! By limiting the races I train for and loving the workouts when I run and loving that I can still move EVERY DAY, I think I have the best of it all!
Food for thought. I love my running…
