I had a fantastic run on Saturday with my sister-in-law. We ran 4.2 miles in 45 minutes (10 min. 40 sec per mile). I'm glad that not every run sucks - otherwise it would be harder to do it. I know it's Valentine's Day, but I'm contemplating going to the gym tonight. It really helps calm me and it is relaxing. Plus I don't have to go tomorrow if I do it today!
My trip to California taught me 2 things.
1.) It's really hard to eat well when your brother is a fantastic cook.
2.) It wasn't that hard to make time for a run.
In April we're planning a family vacation, and I was wondering how my running/training would fit into the schedule. Now that I've had a mini practice run, I know that I can do it if I make it a priority.
Even though I'm not able to "train" for the half marathon. The doctor is still encouraging me to keep up with my fitness. I guess it is a perfect excuse to not exercise, but I plan on running a half marathon at some point. I mean there has to be a stretch of time where I don't injure myself, need surgery, or have other life altering things happen right? If anything, being told no has made me more determined to do it.
