I switched from running in the evenings to running in the morning, which is a completely different experience. I don’t have to worry about people interrupting me, or telling me I need to be doing something else, because by 10am it’s out of the way, I don’t have to worry about finding time, and I have energy throughout the day. Changing my routine was TOUGH and a lesson in itself.
I also had a doctor appointment today… she noticed that I’d lost a little weight. This wasn’t my original intention for this goal, but gaining weight due to a certain medicine I was on made me feel like I was in someone else’s body (I’m accustomed to being somewhat athletic) and not being able to take off that little bit of weight when I stopped it (until recently) was frustrating. But she noticed a difference in my overall appearance (not weight- but color and energy) and was happy that I’d taken up running. I am too, of course.
