The Return Of The Run

Yesterday afternoon, I ran again. Really, it was the first time since October. It was past time for me to get off my rear and resume my marathon training. Yes, I still have plenty of time before "officially" starting the training plan, but when I get to that point, I want to already be in the habit of running several times a week.

I overslept yesterday morning, so I didn't get out in the morning. It's still pushing too dark to do before-work runs, too, but it would be OK. Anyway, I came home and got a run in before it got too dark in the evening. I did my standard 3.25 weekday loop. I ended up running the whole time without walk breaks, which kinda surprised me, even though I was deliberately going much slower than I used to run it. When it was all said and done, I ended up making it a 13:13 pace, which is a nice, slow way to ease back into my running.

It felt great. My back was fine with it. My knees were fine with it. My foot was fine with it. I think I might go running with S on Saturday for a "long" run, but at this point "long" is only going to be about five miles.
