Running in BelgiumAnn
Glad to know I'm not the only one struggling to get any running in at all this month! I was doing so well, I had only missed one run since July or August. I was all ready for the final run of One Hour Runner. Then that huge snow storm hit Portland, then Christmas & New Years happened... I missed a couple of weeks, and have only been managing two runs a week, none up to an hour yet. I was sore after two weeks of sitting out! I am getting back into shape, and thankfully the break let my knees rest from the increase in mileage during the OHR program. But boy, is it a struggle to run, what with very busy work days, it getting dark so early, and my 3 hours of commuting every day. I can't wait for our offices to move downtown and the sun to stay out longer. And we'll have no more of those huge snowstorms, thank you very much.
Good luck keeping it going, everyone. I know how hard it can be to start up again after a break, or when the season makes it so challenging. Even though I was out only 2 weeks of the last 5 months, it took no time at all for my brain to go back to my sedentary norm of the last 12 years. All the sudden it was like, "Running? What running?" It took some effort of will to get out there again. But I am glad I did!
