I figured I would feel it out. I would go at it slow and if I felt anything funny, I would stop and walk or if really bad call home for a ride. A mile into it and I was feeling good. I stopped only to see how my back was feeling. Tight, but no pain. I ended up doing a good 3 miles and felt real good at the end. No pain or aches. It was a slower than normal run though. But it was a run and that was all that matters.... It never snowed by the way..... all we got was a dusting.
Today, I woke up and I knew that I was running again. My marathon plan called for a 9 mile run today, but I knew that wasn't going to happen. Next weekend's "long run" called for a 6 miler, so I figured I would try to do that today and just do the 9 next weekend. I didn't take my Garmin with me today. I just wanted to run and enjoy it today.
Today's weather at 10am this morning:
The wind made it feel like -2 degrees! Aint going to lie.... it was F'N cold out there!!!!
I pulled out 5 miles. I mile shorter than what I wanted, but I'm not disappointed. I ran and I'm happy with that. My back felt tight at first, but loosened up quick. By mile 2, I was feeling really good, but still kept it a slower pace than normal. The last thing I want is to hurt my back again.
I'm jumping right back into my marathon training. This week calls for a 3-5-3 milers. I'm sure that mile I lost today, I will throw back in one of these these runs. Feels good to be back to running. I know it was only like 8 days of no running, but you know how it is, 8 days in a runners life is like 8 years. LOL...
Today I invite my family & friends to follow my blog via my Facebook page. They all know that I have a passion for running. Some don't know how far that passion burns. Most just think that I'm crazy.
Welcome to my world!!
