I'm also torn about running this morning. I cut way back on my runs at the end of the year due to being plagued later by awful headaches every time I went out. I've stuck to my treadmill, barely finishing two or three miles, not bothering to run outside at all anymore--which I always loved. I miss the road, the hills, the weather. I miss running with Tucker-he's a great partner, beautiful stride, totally enthusiastic, so much fun to run with-all full of joy and eagerness. I'd love more than anything to take him for a spin in the snow this morning. I'd also love to train for a 10k or a half-marathon, but fear of the headaches returning makes me feel more inclined to keep it at only a few miles in the comfort of my basement. It's no fun getting old.
I suppose the important thing is staying healthy, keeping positive. Moderate exercise is better than no exercise at all. I'm also beginning a detox diet, hoping that might help me feel a little better, more energized. We ate a lot of junk over the holidays, time to get back on track and be better to myself and my health! And, with that, I'm off to the basement for a little Deathly Hallows while I churn out a few good miles to Adele...Good day, all!
