User Topic: Umm, I ran

So a long, long time ago in a land and life far away, I used to run every day. I never ran a marathon or a 5k or any race of any kind but I ran every morning, every day for an hour. Now I wasn't in super runner shape then and I am certainly not now either but I loved running. xWH never went with me, he stayed in bed sleeping. It was something I did alone and for me. I gave up everything for me when I tried to rescue a marriage by myself. I know bad choice but it was mine.
I quit smoking last month and IrishLad and I have been doing mini workouts in the house. This led to walking outside and this morning, I ran. Not far, not fast , just a little but I ran. I have missed it more than I knew. I think I may be making daily visits to my old running self again

Congratulations! I have started again as well.

Seems like many of us lose weight, start running and redecorate!

Good for you! (In more ways than one!)

I wish I enjoyed running. Being asthmatic taught me that running hurts.

If anyone ever sees me running, the zombie apocalypse has begun and Im trying to keep my brains inside my head!

Nice irishlass! I like to run too, did it all through my marriage and it definitely got me through the first year or two after Dday. (Like you, not long distances mind you, though I do run an occasional organized 5k, I really like the mud obstacle 5k's).
However, since I started the new career over a year ago I started slacking, but I just started kicking it up again, and I am SORE! But it feels great!

Great job lady.

Yeah! Fabulous. I'm happy you're taking it slow and doing what feels good without pushing too hard. That's good for the spirit AND the body!

Add me to the list of those who lost themselves and their self-care while trying to manage their Xs and Ms.

I was in great shape when I met X...then the depression and self-loathing and all that mess set in and I looked just about as gross as I felt. X was so mean to me about my body, he'd compare me to other women who's bodies he liked better.

Now, I'm healthy and free and fabulous. My body is bangin' and I love it! Ironically, I now have the exact body shape he used to wish I had before! Just a little vindication...thanks karma, you're the best!

Good for you IrishLass, keep up your bliss!

He didn't show up for the D...very fitting, seeing as he didn't show up for the M, either : )

That's great! Congrats are returning to your old self. I used to do it many years ago.

I would like to run again but I live in mountain lion country and it doesn't feel safe. I would look like prey. I clear brush instead.
