Another short run last night. Had it planned to go a little further, however my daughter had a drama event at school and she thought it would run longer than it did. I was out running when she called to get picked up and had to shorten up my route. As it was, by the time I got there she was the last one left, so I really couldn't have gone longer.
The weather is supposed to improve this weekend. It's really trying right now so I have high hopes. As such, I'd let to get out for a nice long bike ride or even something like a 2 hour walk. This 30 minute thing is fine, but that's really a minimum and I want to be out there more. Especially if it's going to involve SUN!
I will say one thing .... last night's run was more enjoyable, so there's hope. The first 10 minutes is torture, but my body adapted quicker than the day before and the last half of the run felt a bit like it used to (that floaty feeling) and I even managed a not bad pace at the end (8:30ish/mile).
I also found a nice little 5K-ish route near my house that I'd not previously considered. It even has a grocery store mid-route that I can use as a bathroom break (very important feature). Quite convenient! I intend to make good use of this route and add some extensions and/or loops to it. Funny, in the recent years that I've been running, I never once considered heading in this direction.
Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!!!!
