The answer is yes. I may not run every day now unless I am picking up another 5K, but I do plan on keeping up with running on a regular basis. I’ll probably go back down to running a mile-and-a-half and working more on bettering my times rather than distance.
I have love/hate relationship with running. I feel hugely accomplished after running, but while running I just want to stop. Plus, while I haven’t had many problems to date, I do have a bad knee and since running can be bad for the joints I want to minimize the risk of re-injuring my knee.
So with that in mind, I walked this morning and it felt great. It’s a beautiful day in Moorpark (one of the reasons I want to move back down here), and it felt great to just slow it down and enjoy it all. I like walking. Walking was one of the first things I started doing to lose weight, so it was like getting back to my roots. I’ll be walking for the rest of my life; it’s part of my “lifestyle change.” But running is creeping it’s way in.
