Can you believe that this was my first proper run this month? (Not counting the 15 minutes on the treadmill after lifting, I guess.) Stupid injuries, grumble. I’m working at home and it’s a rainy day, but I got out the door during a pause in the rain and hoped for the best. It mostly worked; the last 10 minutes it started up again. Not a big deal for me, but I was a little worried about my phone (it survived, thankfully).
I went for 30 minutes and covered 2.4 miles, and my back feels okay (for now; we’ll see). My cardio conditioning is not what it used to be– my heart rate monitor says the average HR was 168 and it had me well into the 170s during uphill parts. Another thing to work on, getting some endurance cardio back into the mix.
But that’s not to say I’ve been inactive this past week– far from it. I ran out of exercise clothes and sports bras (today I pulled out my oldest, most worn one to run in and hoped for the best). I just washed all 7 and hung them up to dry. This is why I have to do laundry every week…
Way to get back to it!
