Today was it: My first run back. 30 minutes in Zone 1! It took me a very. long. time. to get motivated. It is VERY cold here! I finally layered on my tights, shirt, winter jacket, hat, gloves, and laced up my shoes. And headed out with Coach for what I thought would be a terrible run.
Maybe I psyched myself out, so that ANYTHING was going to be better than what I was imagining.
Or maybe, because last time I took time off it was 6 months instead of 3 weeks, I didnt realize the transition back wouldnt be as painful.
Or maybe it was a fluke, and tomorrows run will leave me weeping.
No matter what, today was 9:02’s in Zone 1! For my first run back! I am stoked about this! Before the marathon I was running 8:07’s at the same heart rate. Could it be? Could I only have lost a minute/mile of fitness during this 3 weeks of gluttony and weight gain? I dont want to get my hopes up (but they are!).
Speaking of gluttony….yesterday after I made that leisurely brunch, I made linner tacos for PW and I before he left for some Zamboni-ing. They were awesome. I love Wholly Guacamole so much!
And last, I got a FoodBuzz account. Finally. So add me!
We keep our heat pretty low to cut costs (so, its 58 degrees in here right now..)
We do a lot of this with the dogs to stay warm! Im going to go get back at it. Im chilled after that jog!
