Finally, the spirit of running, well the spirit of the Granny shuffle, kicked in as I made my way around one of my walking routes. It felt amazing. Since my foot drama I have come back with a 100k row and a jumprope challenge and a barely shuffle twenty feet on Monday’s walk.
For the last few weeks I have been pushing my Wall Ball (my little Charlie R. in his stroller) for a mile plus walk, gradually increasing my walking speed but today something just took over and I started the real granny shuffle. It was a bit of a shock.
Then my mind kicked in telling me to start some run/walk intervals for time when all of a sudden my mind took over and I started shuffling, not wanting to walk. (It may have happened because I was so close to home and I wanted to be done already.) And as I shuffled those old feelings of thinking I am a runner popped into my mind.
I am back. Shuffling, but I am really back. Time to break out the PWR Sandbag and take that shuffle to the next level.
