Last night, after months of not running beyond a few feet, i got back to it. Spring, having time again now that the PE is done, and making some other healthy choices has been great motivation. I won’t lie. Being a (slow) runner and the awfulness in Boston has also influenced me. I’m more determined to aim for the Hartford Half Marathon this year. It already has been a goal because it’s a big anniversary year, but now just a little more.
So it was 4 miles of mixed running and walking. My knees are a little sore today, but that’ll lessen up as i get back into it (and have less weight to carry on them).
Afterwards I caught up with Ian for a few, had a good shower and made a dinner of chicken sausage and salad. The salad had lettuce, spinach, peppers, tomato, celery, carrots, goat cheese and seeds. Pretty yummy!
The truth is, exercise encourages me to eat well, which encourages me to exercise. It’s a good cycle.
