If you're a triathlete, running would only be a tertiary exercise...

I used to ride bike primarily and run second. That changed to running first, biking second.
Focus now is intense boot camp type exercises, far in second place is running.
For me this was the right choice. running has suffered but overall I'm in much better shape.

Why would it be bad? Do you enjoy your new routine? Is it working to achieve your goals? If your goal is to PR on a marathon or ultra race, then it would probably not be the best, that's the only thing I can think of.

nope. I'm trying to add ST to my routine, and just can't seem to do it. I'm not giving up yet though.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Actually, to paraphrase Martha Stewart, it's probably a good thing.

Respect life.

An attitude of gratitude can wipe away bad thoughts anytime.

It's not bad at all. I went from basically only running, to also swimming and biking. I discovered I absolutely love my swim days!! My other exercises actually make running more enjoyable.

I went from mostly JUST running (200 miles per month many times) to a combination of running, stairmaster, biking, kayaking and strength training - which, as you can imagine is a fairly good and broad way to exercise. So is it BAD that running has become a secondary or even third exercise option in my life?
