And so, it begins…Run #1
My training weeks go from Sunday to Saturday.
I was down for 10kms broken down between Thursday and Saturday. I ended up doing close to 9km.
Thursday was a GREAT run! It was cold as all get out, but I was layered sufficiently and had a route planned out.
It was my very first run outside, post December,…EVER.
I was hella tight on Friday, using muscles I haven’t used and not used to running in the snow….with some dodge and weave action, lol. Running with snow….interesting. Note: More stretching required.
|No, I was NOT robbing any stores…|
|Also, first run with my Garmin!|
|It was snowing – so pretty|
Saturday: Run #2
Well, today wasn’t as awesome as I wanted, close to 4kms.
I was too fast out of the gate. Ran hunched over. That made my lower back sore. Just not my best run.
But, I ran. Better than no run. (There was a break just before I ran up the trail to stretch out my back.)
The difference between now and from years past was that I knew when I was done.
I didn’t push it.
Got home and had a good stretching session.
Then came coffee and a hot shower.
|Sweat Frost! Woop!|
|I love my Garmin!|
|Clear sidewalks make awesome runs 🙂|
All in all, I am pleased with the first “week” (aka: two days, lol).
Tomorrow starts a full, action packed week of running awesomeness.
C’mon back next Saturday for a play by play of how a full week of training may or may not have killed me 😉
