I must have pushed myself a tad too hard on the running regime, or increased my milage too fast.I mean my longest run was 5 miles at an 830 pace, so not ver long at all. Maybe it’s not the best idea to run everyday. Duh, of course I knew this. But I rationalized… “well, [insert health blogger] is running 15 miles and a marathon this week, so this is nothing.” Unintentionally comparing myself to others has led me to not being able to run. Excruciating hip pain.Ouch. The worst part is this is the second time this has happened. I obviously didn’t learn my lesson…
It’s been about a month and I’m slowly getting back into running, no more than 3 miles with walk breaks, but at least it’s something!
On a more positive note, I’ve realized the awesomeness of weight lifting. I feel so hardcore lifting, and it helps me build strength in my yoga practice. Yep, yoga is still a part of my daily life.
I’ve also gotten the chance to get off the island and visit my favourite city! So I’ve had a beautiful refreshing weekend right after midterms filled with yoga, family, shopping, and yummy vegan food. Pure bliss.
Yup, I said vegan! It’s been three months and I feel really great. Mentally and physically I appreciate following a vegan lifestyle and all it has to offer to my mind, body, and soul. I am learning more and more everyday, it’s so much more than a diet. And I feel, completely in this moment, at peace. What more can you ask for?
