Today’s Inspiration: Breaking up (With Running) Is Hard to Do

Dear Running,

There is no easy way to tell you this, so I’m just going to say it. We need to break up.

It’s  not you, it’s me. I know you’ve been there for me a lot in the past. You’ve listened to me on our long weekends and mornings together. You taught me to be patient and you taught me to tough it out.  You used to make me very happy, but lately I’m just not feeling it. I need to move on.  Unfortunately, it’s time for me to look for a new love. I’m not sure what that will be….yoga, interval training, spinning…I’ve been with you for so long, I’m not sure what is next for me.

I’ve thought about this for a while now. Last winter, I knew things had changed. My heart didn’t feel the same when you and I would get together. I was sad and hurt after we’d meet up.  That’s when I knew this wasn’t going to work out, me and you.

I hope we can get together here and there, because I’d still like to see you. every now and then. I’ll miss you, but I think it’s time and it’s what is best for me (and what my body needs).

Love,
Julie

  1. Can we motivate each other to start back up with trx? ?And actually, I have heard that high impact exercise like running influences auto immune diseases increasing inflammation. Just a thought ❤

    1. I’ve started up TRX again through HIIT training each week. You need to start back up–yes, let’s motivate each other! I love how much stronger I feel when I consistently do it :). I have read that higher impact things like running affect inflammation too–I’m going to try to focus on yoga and other exercises that don’t put as much stress on my body to see how that goes. I’m hoping it helps with things.
