Hi tennosea, which forum did you see me on?
I am completely done with running, as for now. I haven’t gone for a run in about 15 months now. I enjoy other types of fitness, like walking, lifting weights, calisthenics etc. I think in a state of a higher metabolism and with more consistent calories I could do it again safely, but not how I used to. I used to run an average of 8-12 miles a day. I feel doing 30 minutes or so would be a lot healthier. I don’t have a desire for it anymore though. (7 years takes its toll mentally).
I feel like running can very easily be intertwined with an eating disorder, and that’s what makes it kinda dangerous if you are trying to recover. I feel running can be healthy if you genuinely enjoy it, but if you are using it as a mask to continue a disorder, then it becomes a problem. If you can do it without thinking about good at all, that’s a good sign. How has your progress been so far?
Thanks for the compliments by the way, I’d be happy to take your number :) hahaha. Really though, let me know if you wanna talk more, I like to help.
