Tonight, I ran with the MRTT group. This is about the 4th time I’ve gone with this group. I’m beginning to fit in, and I’m even beginning to conquer social anxiety.
The past two weeks have given me a lot of drama in my life, and I am so grateful that I had my running to help me cope with it. I’m glad I had this group of women, as well as my Boot Camp group, for support.
It was hard watching my significant other go through a serious operation on the other side of the pond, while I am over here. But, it turned out to be for the best. He is home and we are already planning what to do on holiday next year. My running and my running friends, helped me through the ordeal.
Another thing….even though I cannot keep the same pace as the group, I go my way and they go their way but we meet at the same place at the end. I have found that my pace is improving and have cut off 1 minute on my mile, bringing me to a 17:48 minute mile.
Through the group, I have also been introduced to new running routes/trails.
It’s good to be out of my box and getting into a new comfort zone.
Maybe it’s time to add intervals to my training.
Stay tuned for the next chapter of my journey.
