I have decided to go ahead and start doing run/walk intervals instead of just running the entire time, mainly because my body seems to like this style better. I have been trying to channel my old self (pre-injury) and it just has not been working out, at all. I so want to be back where I was before my pelvic stress fracture, but I now realize I am just not that person or runner any longer.
I am coming to terms with the realization I am where I'm at in my running and that where I'm at is a good place. I don't have to compete with my old self any longer. I have joined a ladies running group here in my home town and my first run is Sunday the 24th. These ladies are doing the C25K in preparation for The Pear Blossom Run in Medford, Oregon in April. I figured it would be good to just get back into the habit of running even though I can run a 5k already...it is all good!
I am okay with the new me...the plant based diet is going great and my heart definitely loves it, life is Great at this time. The exception is that my son was in an accident last Saturday and was run off the road by a truck while he and his brother were long-boarding near our house. We took him to the ER and found that he broke his collar bone and injured his shoulder and may need surgery. Please keep him in your prayers, he is home and will see surgeon Friday. Blessings and hugs to you all!
Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck. "Limitations only exist if you let them" © 2012 Shannon M. King. This publication is the exclusive property of Shannon M.
