It has been over a month since my last run. I would tell myself to go for a run and instead I would jump rope or go to the gym for cardio on the step mill. I am so hot and cold when it comes to running, unless I have a race in the near future. I had picked out a fun race to do in November but then realized it was the same weekend as The Nutcracker, so I scratched that.
The weather has been so amazing, today I told myself that I just HAD to get out and run two miles. I didn't have high expectations, my goal was to run under 10 minute miles.
I did it! I ran 9:42 minute miles and I felt awesome. Luckily running comes fairly easy to me, I may not be the fastest but I can run without walking even after somewhat of a break from running.
Running makes me feel strong and healthy. Glad I got it in today and plan on running 2.5 tomorrow, getting back in running shape just in time for winter ;)
