So, I totally dreamed about running last week.
I’ve never done that before.
Not even once.
I mean, I’ve had those nightmares where I’m trying to run but it’s like I’m slogging through the thickest mud ever and I can barely move but that’s not the same thing.
This was joyous and free and FUN!
I guess I’ve solved my potential identity crisis – I am DEFINITELY a runner!
(seriously, like I didn’t REALLY know that down deep inside. sheesh.) ;)
In fact, the desire for me to get out the door is pretty overwhelming these days.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to. The doc says I need to wait and I’m going to wait.
I might even add a couple of extra weeks to the wait just to be safe.
That’s how important it is to me.
I don’t want to run on my foot until it’s ready to be run on.
But, boy oh boy, do I want to run!
I’ve even, and don’t everyone start yelling at me at once, started thinking about what 50k I might want to train for.
Stop throwing things! I’m not going to run until I can and then I’ll take it slow! I’m not talking about running a 50k in a couple of months from now.
Maybe Springtime – are there any 50ks (boy, that word looks weird but I refuse to make it ‘s because it’s most definitely not possessive!) in the Spring or are those mostly Fall races? I’ll have to research! I definitely want to run the one that I can’t next month.
I just can’t imagine my life without running.
It’s been such a big part!
It’s given me so much and I love being outside and seeing the world (or my cute little town, even though there are bears). :)
And, I’m definitely going to be doing a CrossFit Endurance training plan once I start back up.
I really enjoy the blend of the two sports.
My running definitely benefits from CrossFit and my CrossFit workouts benefit from my running – hello, endurance! :)
I feel a little bit like I have a new lease on life, as silly as that may seem, and I cannot wait (but, I will. patiently, even.) to get back out the door with my running shoes on.
Talk to me: Do you dream about the sport you love? Are you a good patient? Are you patient?
