After over 2 months on IC healing my foot, major life event, fighting some flu-like illness and few common colds, I am back!
Yesterday was beautiful Monday morning. Alarm clock... well... barely survive, as it was set up for 5 am. After only few snoozes at 5:15 I was out of bed putting my running clothes on. Glass of lemon water, warm up, and off I went... with 'simple' W1R1 on my phone. This time no music, no Laura, just me, my breath, day waking up, surprised sleepy drivers passing by, and my head filled with positivity. I thought it was only 2 months, I was quite far in my running journey, I did it before, several times, so it shouldn't be difficult. Oh man, I was wrong. During first 1-minute-run I was thinking, no worries, it's just warm up, I will get it and it will get easier. It didn't. I couldn't find the pace. I was very conscious about my foot. Pounding heart wasn't really helping, and feeling of compressed chest either. But I completed all 8 runs Of course all followed by a proper stretching , nice shower, and healthy breakfast.
Today, I am sore. Despite a warm bath at the end of the day. It may be also due to loads of housework and long afternoon walk with my dog. She had a very good pace, as we did 5.6km in 1 hour walking, and she had some river/canal swim, so there was a slower part. I am during journey to discover such energy level as my dog has
Healing myself today with some gentle 15-min yoga session, and maybe, just maybe a abs workout after work. Can't wait to see if tomorrow's run will be easier. I will take Laura with me, just for additional motivation and companion.
