This weekend was just what I needed — productive yet restful.
It was difficult to get back into the swing of things – work and workout wise – after vacation; hence, the slow start to my week of workouts. I felt like I was catching a cold, but I think I am in the clear now.
Today’s solo 4-mile run was probably the highlight of my exercise this week. After a horrendous, and somewhat frightful, storm last night (and rainy week in general), I was very grateful to run outside and witness signs of spring. I ran music-free and without a knee brace, in efforts to simply listen to and enjoy my body and my surroundings.
Today’s run gave me hope that my passion for distance running is possible for the future.
