Bless me Father, for I have sinned. It has been over three weeks since my last run...three weeks and one day to be exact. These are my sins. I have been lazy and chose the couch and the television over my trainers. I have made excuses and not treated my body as the temple that it should be treated as. Most of all, I have eaten like a PIG!!!! Please forgive me for these running sins and know that for my penance I have just completed a 3.26 mile run with a temperature of -4 C. AMEN
Yes, it has been 22 days since I have ventured out for a run. All of the above is true, but we were also hit by the most fierce of flu bugs and our daughter had surgery to replace her ACL. Those events combined with an wonderful Christmas, led us to not finding the time to run.
On the brighter side, for anyone worried about can they still run after a bit of a break...the answer is YES YOU CAN!! It was a rough run and a very slow one, too. All in all though, I have to count it as a success. It was a run and not another snack-fest on the couch!!
To top it all off, I tried out my running tights for the first time!! I am quite impressed!! I was pretty pleased with how warm they kept my legs!! I also had the matching top and top all of it off with a fleece pullover. The fleece proved to be a bit much so I think that I will go with something a bit lighter the next time. Also, my stocking cap was far too heavy. Sue, you will be happy to know that I too, may soon be investing in a Buff!!!
Welcome back, trainers!!
