It's Good to be Back!
See the Whitetail?
Finally, a decent schedule is emerging from my new responsibilities. I'm easing back into running and feeling few side effects in my feet. Thursday was exactly 5 weeks since I ran longer than one hour, and I felt great! I put some time in on the Glacial Trail course and found it to be very overgrown in the prarie sections. Luckily I had generously applied OFF! and found no evidence of ticks after running through it. Letting the tips of the grasses hit my palms reminded me of the closing scene of Gladiator, with several obvious exceptions regarding myself and Russell Crowe :)
My "Gladiator" Moment
Then, on Saturday, while I wanted to run LONG again on the trails, I took a more prudent approach to my return and did a nice tempo 8 miler on the trail.
Yesterday, in another amazing feat of discipline, I didn't run but instead biked for 1:30. That was followed with some yard games and pool time to celebrate the wonderful weather and country we live in!
This morning the plan was to get in about 8 miles on the trails...but last night was a bit late with Edwin, so instead, I'm writing about my training last week. And as of about a minute ago, I can hear the little guy waking up...so I better wrap this up and go get him before he wakes Mumma!
