I can’t deny that I haven‘t run outdoors in over a week. What?! Now I might talk about the lousy weather or the faint discomfort in my knees, but they’re all just excuses. Fact is, I have been lazy.
Now wait a second! I did workout last week, on Tuesday I went to the gym, and on Friday I did a DVD workout. So the situation isn’t all that bad. I just didn’t run. That by itself wouldn’t be a problem, but I have a 6 mile race in less than 5 weeks, so I’d better increase my mileage again!
So today I went on another Lunch Break Run, this time all by myself. It was freaking hot, after two miles I felt like my head was going to explode, but somehow I still enjoyed that run.
- Distance: 3.2 miles (5,1 km)
- Time: 34:40 minutes
- Average pace: 10:50 min/mile
- Feeling: Proud
In short, it feels so great to be back!
Oh, and that trainer appointment at my gym was rescheduled, again! Let’s see when/if it will happen.
