Here’s hows things went down.
Thanksgiving day: ran a half marathon
Day after Thanksgiving-Christmas: forgot how to run. (not literally, I just rarely did it)
Jan 6th: started my new training for my next half.
So I have been back in the grind for 2 weeks now and it’s been good. I will say it’s nice to have shorter runs..at least for right now but I am anxious in a good way to get my mileage back up.
Yesterday I went out for my 3 miler, was siked and ready to kick it, when I realized I forgot my socks………. brilliant.
I stood for a moment and contemplated, “do I go home after work to get socks? Knowing once I’m home I’ll be tempted to stay put” or “or am I hard core enough to just run without socks?”
I ran. Without socks. Thankfully it was only an easy 3 miler so I figured the blisters will stay away. And thankfully I was right. The run was great. It was actually the fastest I’ve ran 3 miles in a long time. No socks. No problem.
After my run I went to the grocery store to get some ingredients for dinner. Went home and started cooking. We had this yummy enchilada bake again. SO Good
I got my headband/earwarmer in the mail this past week. I cannot wait to use this thing! I love Salomon.
Short post for you today! Work has been so hectic this week I haven’t had much time for other things outside of work but running and sleeping. Happy Friday!
