and I ran....


Sunday, October 13, 2013

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.

    Way to go! Wish I could say I enjoy running -- I'd really LIKE to run, but whenever I do it, I do not enjoy it at all. Physically I can do it, but mentally I just get distracted and bored. I envy all you runners!!
