If you follow me on Instagram you know that I started running again after a LOOONNNGGG time off. If you have been following this blog you may remember I had some pretty random thoughts on a treadmill awhile ago.
I am not a fast runner due to my asthma and allergies, but these last few days were SLOW even by my usual times. I am trying not to get discouraged and I know I have only been back at it for a week. I know I will never be able to run very fast – but then I think who cares right? I’m doing SOMETHING since it’s getting cold out. During my run I decided to make a list of all the things I HAD to be faster than:
- sloth (one of my fav animals – I am most likely faster than the 3 toed AND 2 toed ones!)
- slug (does every slow animals name start w/ S?!?)
- turtle (no, is the answer to the question above)
Maybe someday I can add some more animals to the list, but as of 5:00 this morning – that was about it. Also I realize I am faster than when I am just sitting on the couch watching TV – LOL!
So why did I start running again? Well it’s getting pretty cold so I probably won’t be riding my bike a whole lot for a while. Oh yeah…and I signed up for a marathon with my sister in May….so there’s that – LOL. I am not sure what I got myself into, but we will see how it goes I guess! I hope it goes well because I have hopes of doing the Disney Marathon in January 2018!!
Anyone else switch from cycling to running (or something else) when the weather gets bad?
