The whole time I was taking a break from running to deal with my hip bursitis I worried about how much running fitness I was losing. The first couple of runs after my break I was really worried about how much running fitness I had lost because even my old super easy pace felt hard.
Granted I’ve been able to shed my run/walk intervals which is really nice, but my legs just did not want to turn over like they used to. (I mean, not that they ever really turned over fast, but they did move faster.)
Last night I finally started getting my mojo back!
When was the last time I saw a mile in the 11s? Maybe two months ago? Man it felt so good to finish up that mile and see 1-1 click off (even if it was just barely an 11).
I guess it helps that my course looks like this:
Oh, Fort Lauderdale, I love you!
Post run, just chillin! Super grateful that I got to go home from work a little early today and actually got to see the sun from somewhere other than my office!
I can already tell that today is going to be an awesome Friday too. Know why? Because Adam has been in Finland and Germany for work the past two weeks and he finally gets home tonight!!!!!!! I can’t wait to pick him up at the airport!!!
I hope you have a great Friday too!
Any fun weekend plans? Maybe a long run or a race?!
