I have been busy with yard projects that involved heavy manual labor so I cut back on my running. But, boy do I miss it. So. this morning, I put on my running shoes and went out the door and ran...
I couldn't go very far because I committed to watching my grandson as my daughter worked and I had to be back in a half hour. I was catching up on my studies so I did not get an earlier start. I ran without my watch, garmin, Nike +, and i Pod. I guess you could say I ran naked. lol!
It feels so different when I run solo and without music. Today, my thoughts were distracting and I kept finding myself walking. But since I had not run for a while, walking was a good thing.
I need to get back into running. I am planning for the half marathon again in the spring and want to focus on improving my time. So, I am sort of taking a small break from running so I can begin to add miles again starting next month. I want to have enough time so I can safely increase my weekly mileage.
It was a beautiful morning 49 degrees, sunny, little wind and the color of the trees are in their peak. And it felt good to be on the road again.
