I went for a run.
It wasn't far, and it wasn't long.
It wasn't even that fast, but I laced up my shoes and hit the treadmill.
My goal was 3 miles, and even with running only once over the last 2 months, my regular 5.5mph felt slow. I kicked it up a notch to 6.0mph, and managed only 2 short walk breaks. It felt good to get back to running, I've missed it. The more I think about another 70.3 this June, the more I think about how badly I need to get my running miles up.
I am amazed at how much the 30 min Jillian Michael's body revolution DVDs are keeping me in good shape and increasing my strength. I figured that run would have been a lot harder.
Now who wants to fix my nutrition so I can actually drop some more weight?
Have you ever had a long running hiatus?
How was your first run back?
Who wants to help me keep my nutrition on track?!
