Week to date: 2 miles
Month to date: 17.1 miles
Yesterday, I texted my mother to see when I could start running again. I was still feeling a little sore, but I was getting anxious and needed to get out and going again. She told me I could go whenever I felt like I was ready, so I decided I would wait until this morning. What I really want to do deep down is a long, slow run, but I know better than that. So, I opted for an easy 2 miler, just to see where my muscles were at and how it felt.
This morning definitely felt like fall!! Very crisp, very cool, very much like fall. In terms of my run, I felt OK. I could definitely feel the residual soreness! It was hard holding back, considering the last time I ran that 2 mile route I was burning off rage and was going fast.
Oh, and I saw a deer! Yup! And, leave it to me, I was scared... hey, I don't know if it's still a mama with babies that might go all mama on me! But, as I approached, it ran away.
So... on to the next! There is a 5K this weekend in Lake Linden, and another one the weekend after in Painesdale. Right now, I'm leaning toward the second one, but we shall see!!
