Welcome to Fitness Friday # 64
Celebrate fitness. Celebrate good health. Celebrate friends. Celebrate your passion.
September ended up being mostly about health. Or more specifically about breathing. As a result mileage was lower than I wanted. No worries. A low mileage month is worth feeling so much better and being able to just breathe. Anyone else now have Anna Nalick’s Breathe (2AM) stuck in their head?
Running – Out of frustration, for the first time ever, I seriously considered quitting running. Once I knew what the problem was and what I had to do I felt good again. I loved running again. Being
stubborn persistent paid off!

And I can’t not mention this…
September Health – On September 9 I had my first full on exercise induced asthma attack. Freaked me out! It turned out to be a few weeks before I was comfortable running by myself again. Happy to report all is good. 2 puffs and I’m good to go for about 6 hours. Not long after everything seemed fine I either had a cold or allergies. Down and out for almost a week with no running or working out. No worries. Not frustrated. Not discouraged.
Seeing how long I can hold a plank.
Combining 2 of my favorite things…blogging and races. Meeting bloggers IRL.
