I’m going to address the training side of this goal because I don’t want to whine about yoga, again.
It’s so hard. It’s been really rough and tough on my body. I knew running would be crazy, I don’t think I knew or fathomed how grueling the training to be a better runner would be. It’s intense and very specific. Yes there are times when it’s all-body workout but sometimes it’s legs legs legs legs legs – and very specifically squating squating squating squating – did you know there’s more than one way to squat? I didn’t but boy did I learn.
However, I have seen such an improvement in my body – not just running – and have felt so much stronger overall, I can’t complain too much about it. I am sad my former trainer moved to Tennessee but I am overall happy for him. I am upset the trainer he recommended left for Louisiana last minute and I never had the chance to train with her. I am happy I met the 21 year old Lex (I should call her Luthor cause she’s evil) and am training with her presently. She kicks my ass, she’s kind of my favorite.
It’ll get easier, eventually. But I guarantee, Lex will make it harder before I feel it’s any easier. Don’t give up – keep fighting for what you want and for what you what you want do. You’re the only one who can do you Glenn Coco, be brave and make yourself hurt. You’ll heal and you’ll come out stronger. ‘Til next time.
