No not a trip. Just running.
After a long moratorium and then a few short runs I am finally back into my groove. Last week I ran 3 miles twice, this week I ran 3, 3 and 4 miles! By the second run this week, I had finally pulled out the walking intervals and was back to all running. That always feels like such an accomplishment to me.
It is weird, when I don’t run in the winter, I often look back at running with a bit of disdain, and enjoy not having to do it and not having to be a slave to the weather and just…start to think “Maybe I am done with running? If I enjoy this break from it so much, maybe I’ll just never get back into it?”.
But once again I have discovered running is like sex. The less you do it, the less you feel you need it…and the more you do it, the more you want it! I am again starting to love the feeling of my pounding feet!
It is taking a toll on my yoga though…my hips and hams are a bit tighter than they have been, and take more time to warm up. That’s okay though…and I have, surprisingly, almost gotten back my ability to do a full split (even lowering my head to my knee).
Of course, with a new running season, comes some new music. My favorite running songs these days:
