Getting back to running after almost 8 weeks off has been hard! I haven’t stopped running, but there is a huge difference between running around 10 or 15 miles a week compared to my marathon training of 40 plus miles a week! Today’s run was a 8 miler. I ran outside and it was nice to listen to my music and a podcast. I really love listening to my Another Mother Runner podcast the most. It’s just like running with my friends, but I don’t have to do any chatting 🙂
The weather was nice, but I was a little overdressed. My gloves came off after a couple miles. The hard part was the cardio part of the run. I wasn’t trying to break any records, or make any goals, but whew, I was beat when I got home. It felt like a 20 miler! What? It was only a regular weekly 8 mile run?? ugggh. It will all come back to me…. right?
