Feeling strong

I think I mentioned before that I was going to be getting back into running and seriously training for races. Well, that is exactly what I have been doing since the first week of June and I have to say, I am feeling so strong! My current schedule is running MWF and doing some sort of strength workout on TR and sometimes Saturday. My gym offers some fun classes which I have been trying out now and then too. I have been having a lot of fun with it and trying to stay focused. So far I have lost a few pounds and started noticing that my clothes are fitting different than they did a few weeks ago when I started this journey. However, the biggest difference is in how I feel over all. Being able to walk into the gym and the receptionist recognizes me as a regular, not being intimidated to run next to other more advanced runners, my increased flexibility, all of these things are things I have gained over the last 5 weeks and they are all things I didn't even think about before. I love seeing my progression and I am really grateful that I made the choice to get back into this routine.
