I felt like I had a choice to make today: thrive or survive. Surviving would have meant letting my body and it’s monthly visitor win, basically hanging in bed. There would have been nothing wrong with this. Sometimes it’s just necessary. ORRRRR I could choose to thrive. I could get my #flystyle on and get out the door and see what I could do. Maybe I’d get my workout done, maybe I’d decide to run easy for 10 minutes and call it quits. .
Spoiler alert: I decided to thrive. I ran 8 miles with hill repeats. It was uncomfortable thanks to the cramps, bloating, and inflammation my body is fighting. But it was worth it. I know I don’t always make the choice to thrive vs. survive, but I’m so thankful to have the confidence to choose.
