Today was the first time I have run in over a week. I went out prepared to die and actually I did pretty well and still maintained by sub 9:00 min mile time. That made me happy as it has been a bit of a tough week for me. Every minute that I am running is bliss and rejuvenation. Next week is Christmas and I’m looking forward to that too. It was 40 today and the side lanes on the main road were clear so I could run with ease. It hasn’t been clear or warm over this last week but I did manage to step up my gym routine to fill in for the missing runs. something is better than nothing I believe.
