Today was a glorious day for running or doing just about anything outside. For the first time in 10 weeks, I met up with our group for part of their Saturday run. I was also joined by Brian who has just moved to Bellevue with his family, and has been attending our church. Brian and I ran just under 4-miles out Old Natchez with the group before heading back while they continued. Our running pace was between the 8:20s and 8:30s, which felt very comfortable, and overall it was quite an enjoyable run.
This run marked the end of Step 7 in my “return to running program” after completing similar runs on Wednesday and Friday (did a track workout on Thursday).
4 min run / 2 min walk x 4 5 min run / 2 min walk x 4 10 min run / 1 min walk x 3 15 min run / 1 min walk x 3 20 min run / 1 min walk / 15 min run / 1 min walk / 10 min run / 1 min walk 25 min run / 1 min walk / 15 min run / 1 min walk / 10 min run / 1 min walk 30 min run / 1 min walk / 15 min run / 1 min walk / 10 min run / 1 min walk
Even though there has been some frustrations along the way, overall my return to running has gone extremely well. I ended up completing 97.8-miles for the month of October, and 33-miles last week. Not quite where I was before, but way ahead of where I thought I’d be starting November. Thanks to everyone for your continued support.
