I quit you a lot but I always came back to you. Everyone else seemed to enjoy you so much that I didn't want to miss out. I couldn't stay away.
It wasn't until a couple of months ago that we started getting together four times a week that I realized that I had fallen for you. I felt so good after our sessions! I was so happy every time we got together! I felt so full of energy and my mood was so good! Some days that euphoria carried on throughout the entire day.
It wasn't until this week when we couldn't get together according to our schedule (because you hurt me last weekend) that I realized how much I missed you. I felt down. I felt sluggish. I missed you.
And today we were reunited. It felt so good to be together again! I loved every moment of it.
I love you, running. I'm so glad I didn't give up on you because I'm having a lot of fun and I don't want it to end. Let's get together again this Sunday.
I woke up this morning for my first run since last weekend. The back of my leg had been hurting because I may have overdone it and/or twisted something running in the dark while dodging pedestrians in Galveston for the 5K Friday. Either way, I haven't been exercising all week and I really missed it!
But it was 46* outside when I got up. Um, I don't do cold. I know, I know. That's not cold to many of you guys. But this Bahama Momma likes it warm.
I usually give up running in the winter so I wasn't quite sure how to dress for the cold. Helen sent me a link to Runner's World to help me dress appropriately. I thought I was doing it right but I didn't. I ended up dressed like this:
After one lap around the block I had to go back home and shed some layers. In the end this is what I was left with:
|Half marathon training week 11|
25 minutes, 2.22 miles, 11:16 pace
Ran 5:1 intervals (5 minutes running, 1 minute walking)
My running splits: 10:29, 10:32, 10:56, 10:48, 8:34
Did you see that last one?? Yeah, I pushed it for the last minute of running and got 8:34. I was pumped!
So my love and I have been reunited. May our relationship be long and pain free!
