So I haven't really run or done much of any kind of exercise since the Nike half - which was about two and a half months ago.
Since then, I've been home to Ohio a couple of times for some holiday vacation time, went to Japan on a business trip, and oh yeah, have become obsessed with Twilight :) I know a lot of you get antsy when you're not out there running. Me? Not so much. I definitely like being out there with my Nikes and my Garmin but I also am totally content with being a lazy couch potato. And the traveling has kept me busy as well.
But it is time to get back out there and start rebuilding my running base... especially now that I am eyeing some 2009 races.
I started today and took it nice and easy - 2 miles. I just went out there for a nice enjoyable run with no Garmin or heart rate monitor. The weather was gorgeous so it was great. BUT wow - two measly miles took a beating on me. I was kind of embarrassed but I knew I deserved it. I was panting so heavily at the end of my run - I wish I had worn a HRM just because I was curious how high it went up.
I am glad that I did get back out there again. I just need to keep at it. But I am pretty certain that I will not be doing the KP half in February.
For the lovely ladies that I will be seeing on Wednesday, please take it easy on me. ;)
