What is it with me? I swear I have been invaded by the body snatchers where they left only the shell and screwed with the programming circuits of my entire being. It is the only explanation for me dealing with the issues I currently have. What are these issues and what are they caused from, you ask? I have used my painfully acquired “Cause Mapping” skills to ascertain that I like to run more than my body can handle at this point. Anyone who knows me will attest this is insane! Even my brother asked me last week who I was and what I had done with his sister while I was gushing about running. This week I cut back to only running 3 times a week and still doing some cardio daily when I can squeeze it in. So, I walked the equivalent of a 5K on Monday night, felt good last night when I got done with all the other crap going on and got to squeeze in a late evening 1-mile run. Immediately and promptly afterwards I had painful muscles which persist today. So, apparently I am STILL – even with my efforts to cut back on specifically the running impact to my body – doing too much exercise. The insanity is that we are talking about the girl who got winded going up a flight of stairs when I started the new job in October. The girl who got winded walking to her car even! It just occurred to me I should feel embarrassed about my poor health 6 months ago and not talk about it but then I think about the progress I have made with what seems like very little effort and want to shout it to the world. I walked up the 6 flights of stairs today after lunch without getting even slightly winded. It felt amazing! Perhaps with the big 4-0 birthday looming around the proverbial corner I can consider this my midlife crisis? All I know is that I will be 40 and Fabulous by the time it hits at this rate and couldn’t be happier!
