However the more I think about it I think it means a lot more than just the amount of time it takes to run each. I attempted running.... once… a mile… long story short, it wasn’t for me.
What I learned about running though was very important. I realized that instant gratification wasn’t an option. There was this plan I was supposed to have and follow (walk then run in increments, 3-5 times a week). It required training, both physical and mental. Downhill running was easy, but uphill was a battle. Roadblocks were inevitable! My legs stopped working and I needed time to recover.
I felt so many highs and lows about something so seemingly easy yet so freaking hard to accomplish.
But again, nothing is easy, especially now.
What I do know, the process of reflection, having patience and a will to train new muscles will help us push through dark times and make us resilient in areas of life we didn’t expect. Right?
