It was cold out, plus very windy and I still have not shaken off my cold yet so I was a little congested on the run but oddly enough I didn’t feel the need to have a drink.
I decided to track the run but not pay any attention to the GPS (thanks for the tip Runners World). Instead I listened to my body and mapped out a route in my head when I adapted as I went along. I have now run the longest continuous single run since hurting my back and feel ok. I am surprised I feel so well as I have not had a chance to run since last Thursday evening due to us going home to celebrate my birthday.
I doubt I will get much of a chance to run in the next couple of days as I have a manic few days in work as I am off this weekend as Richard is taking me to New York for my fortieth. I am not taking my running kit as it’s incredibly cold and more snow is forecast in the Big Apple.
I did some stretches before I went out today as I had a sedentary day as I worked from home. I also made sure I completed a decent amount of different stretches after the run mainly as I have not been running for a while.
I am very pleased with progress today and as long as I can keep up this momentum and confidence I am sure I will be back to my old pace and distances. in no time. I just wish it would warm up (although this time last year I didn’t run at all as we had heavy snow and ice so I shouldn’t complain!).
