Ok, so it was 65 degrees yesterday. That’s right, 30’s last week – 65 yesterday.
Could it be that spring is peaking its head up? Could this evil winter finally be moving on out? Is it that running season is finally here?
Now yes, I know – we can run all through the winter. (To show my understanding, I have even included a picture of me from years-gone-by – wearing a fashionable winter running outfit!)
It’s just that THIS year, I didn’t. I had severe motivational problems. The snow and dark, just didn’t yell “GO RUN!” to me, so I didn’t. Now the warm weather and sunshine that is in abundance after work? THAT tells me to go run, and so I did!
Having taken the winter off, I wanted to take it easy. But with it being gorgeous out – I wanted to run long. I compromised and did 5 miles, but slowly. I’m sure this is why I am just sore (VERY sore) today, and not in absolute agony! The first couple of miles, my breathing didn’t want to fall in to where it should be. I suppose my body had forgotten over the several non-running months. The uprisings part, is that my breathing started behaving around mile 2! I figured on a couple of air-less runs before my body remembered!
My body gets to heal a little today, and then up in the AM with the boy and running! Not too many days left until the Cherry Blossom Festival!
