Be flexible. That small piece of advice often comes in handy. Like this week when I thought I would be running outside again but found out that running in the dark with a patch covering one eye is NOT a good idea. My Bell’s Palsy has still not recovered so my eyelid does not close. Running with wind hitting your bare eyeball and not being able to blink is a problem. Especially in the dark, cold morning while dodging traffic. So, I have been forced back to the treadmill for a while longer. One thing that is starting to scare me is that I’m getting comfortable on the treadmill. I don’t want to be comfortable. Okay, maybe part of me does but there is no challenge in being comfortable. Until I can get back outside I guess I’ll have to be flexible.
