Slow Short Runs - So far this week, got in another couple of short runs (2.5 and 2.1 miles). I'm currently running really s-l-o-w, but it's getting easier compared to the runs last week. It seems so unfair how easily it is to get out of shape, and how hard it is to get back into shape! But make no mistake, I am thrilled to be running again pain-free, no matter how slow or short the distance right now.
Decision Made - Talked it over with Husband, and we've decided not to do the Sweetheart Run this year. It comes down to not wanting to spend the $$ for a race when I know I'll have a frustrating result due to just barely being running again after a multi-month hiatus. I never wear the race t-shirts from this event, so getting another race shirt isn't motivating me. And it will cold Saturday morning (in the 20s) when the race happens, whereas we can run or cycle together later in the day after it warms up (40s-50s).
B-day Weekend - Husband & I have birthdays surrounding this weekend. His is Friday, mine is Monday.For some reason, even though this isn't a milestone birthday for either of us, I'm really starting to feel old. But I guess getting older beats the alternative! One of the things we are doing to celebrate is going out to dinner Friday then to a performance of My Fair Lady by Big League productions. This particular musical is special to me because I played the part of Eliza during my senior year of high school nearly 30 years ago.
