so i started climbing 2-3 times a week until i got mind-numbingly bored and burnt out on the whole thing. i did, however, get certified to lead climb so that was pretty terrifying and cool all at the same time. i got to climb outside for the first time at devil's lake (which incidentally coincided with a 1/2 marathon i was supposed to be running but had to drop out of) so that was great fun and also bittersweet because i really would have much preferred to be running the race instead.
so i've been doing crossfit (well baby crossfit actually) for just over a month now, and last week i ran 20 miles. TWENTY FREAKING MILES! woo hoo!!
i think it's safe to say that i'm back! i'm running well and pain free. i've been strictly running trails. i've been shown these lovely trails along the river by my house and on the east side by the climbing gym. they are so much fun! trails are my JAM! it's amazing how much easier 7 miles on a trail is compared to 3 miles on a road. so much more fun too.
so i'm hitting up badger crossfit 2-3xs a week to keep my body strong because it seems like it's the only thing getting me running. running is necessary to my wellbeing. physical and mental. i need it to be well. i like climbing, i like crossfit, i like other things... i LOVE running. i am so fortunate that i can run again.
so that's what's been going on with me... what's going on with you?
