That question was asked of me yesterday by my husband. Initially when I read that I thought WTF??!! Why is he asking me this, what does that have to do with anything? So I thought about it and the honest answer is I don’t know. I like the idea of being challenged. I like the idea of trying new things. Do I like running though? I don’t really know to be honest. I have days where I hate it and can’t stand the thought of running another mile. Then there are moments when I feel like I wish I could run more and faster. My husband is trying to find his way and what he likes. He doesn’t like running, he actually thinks running sucks and doesn’t quite get why I like it. Sometimes I am not sure if I even like running though.
What is the point of this post? The point is that I am confused. I am confused with what I want to even do anymore. I know I need to improve on my strength training to lose the rest of the weight. I am loving kickboxing right now though but fear that I am doing way too much cardio. Thus being totally counterproductive because I am not building muscle only burning it. Catch 22, I enjoy my cardio but I have to find a better balance. I also need to figure out how to stop getting injured doing the things I really like.
So the answer to the question is no I don’t like running, I really do love it. I love how I feel when I do it. I love that not even 2 years ago I couldn’t do it. I love that I feel human and happy when I run. I love challenging myself with new races, new distance and new people. I just need to find a balance. I need to figure out how to keep doing what I love but also keep getting healthy.
