I went for a run last night. It was short – only 3.3 miles. And I was S L O W. But I did run.
I have excuses for why I quit running – I was sick for almost two weeks. But getting back on the running horse has been extremely difficult for me.
Wait – I don’t know if its semantics or not, but I don’t want to say it has been extremely difficult. What I actually want to say is I have not gotten back on the running horse. Has it been difficult? Mentally I guess I haven’t found the motivation I need. Physically, its no harder than it was last month to get up and run.
I still think I have found my bad underwear motivation, I just haven’t executed that plan since the Rock-n-Roll half marathon.
I’m working on a way to report how many miles I run each month – not there yet – but I can tell you that for the entire month of February, I ran about 10 miles. A far cry from the 60 miles I needed to run to hit my goal of 750 miles by the end of the year.
So, last week I ran a long hard 1k lap and last night a full 3.3 miles. Am I back on the horse? Or is it just to early to tell?
