Beginning about at the start of school my running has been feeling crappy and then started to get inconsistent. I trained well for my 2 day bike ride and felt good for that but did not enjoy (not that I really do) running. As the nights are getting colder and it’s darker, I am not as willing or able to run during my boys soccer practice which is when I usually do during the week.
I am meeting friends in the mornings now to walk and take our dog Agnes out to get her more socialized. But I don’t manage to take time for me and actually get a good run in which I need.
So I ripped the band aid off and before my walk with my friend, I decided to go run. I wanted to get a 30 min steady run before I walked but I was late. So I ran for 20 min. It’s better than nothing and it helps to get me back into the routine. That’s what matters, not how long I ran, not how hard or fast I ran, just that I got outside and ran.
After it was all done, I moved my body for 5 miles and over 1.5 hours. I am happy with that and will keep it up. The weather was beautiful.
