I am currently doing interval training, which means I walk for a minute and run for a minute, I enjoy this more than straight running because I don't get bored and I get these mini "breaks" to change that chatter in my head.
I changed the chatter in my head, not by answering the questions, I left words and just paid attention to how my body was feeling. I could feel the warmth circulating through out my body, the little stabilizing muscles in my feet, I could feel my tight calves, and I was breathing. I know it seems like I was using words to describe how my body was feeling at the time, I am just translating the moment for you all. In short my body was alive, it was showing me gratitude for using it, and also telling me where I need to be gentle with it.
I am getting to know my body in a different way when I run and that is one reason why I am doing this.
