This morning I had an awesome run. A little over a month ago I injured my leg. I guess from not warming up properly before my run...that's the best answer I could come up with. So, I took two full weeks off of running (which totally killed me) and just cross-trained at the gym. I never knew how addicted I came to running until I couldn't run. After the two weeks I was able to go back to running...but I started out slow. The first day I just ran a mile to see how my leg felt and how it would respond afterwards. After feeling great I went back to my three day a week running schedule with an increase each time of 1/2 mile. Each time it felt great. My leg felt better than ever. So, this morning I finally hit the 4.2 miles that I was running when I hurt my leg. The best part is that I did it with a decrease in my average pace by 1.10 minutes. I felt it the whole way. I knew I was going so much faster. The worst part is that I have had to start running later in the morning because it is so dark outside and the sun was beating down on me. It was hot. I was so sweaty when I got home. But I felt awesome. It was a true runners high. So, after about 40 ounces of water and a bowl of blueberries I felt even better. Happy Friday everyone. Have a great weekend!
