"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."
Miraculously, things are going along as they should...
Tuesdays I work only in the evening, but I got up at my usual time this morning and was headed out to run errands by 9am. I went to a natural foods store and Costco...it is not easy to make sure we have lots of good food on hand. I also went to buy hemp protein for after-long-run shakes. I need to eat more, as I'm working out more, which would be a lot easier to do with junk food.
After errands, I went to the gym and did my 4K tempo run on the treadmill (very icky weather today). I then stuck around and did my strength training. So, I'm pleased. Actually, I'm more than pleased...despite the fact that my lungs went through a rough time over the last week or so, I have not had to skip any workouts. The test results show lots of inflammation, but I don't feel sick. I'm not even coughing that much...I just know my lung capacity is down (because I take a peak flow measure morning and night)...but it's not really affecting my quality of life like it used to when I would get sick. Everything is so much more under control and I am convinced that being more fit and having a stronger heart and better cardio due to running are important contributing factors. So, things are going along as they should and I'm pleased...very pleased :)
