My Lungs are Lagging June 8, 2010

Posted by The Barefoot MD in : Health, Running , 2comments

I’ve been listening to my body for the past few days and it’s been telling me that I need to rest and recover from running for a time . . . until this morning.  I went out for a little run this morning and ended up going two miles . . . barefoot . . . partly on the road and partly on the sidewalk.  I stepped on a few pebbles that made me take notice, and one wedged itself into the joint under my left big toe and made me feel like I had developed a blister.  So, I stopped and looked . . . brushed it off (happy it wasn’t a blister) and went on my way.  My feet are getting tougher, my muscles are getting stronger, but my lungs are lagging behind.  I was a bit winded at the end of the two miles, but I’m glad I went.  I love the hours after a run or good exercise.  Your body truly rewards you for working it.

Enjoy your health!
