Day 37: Back on the horse

November 9, 2012 at 4:07 am 2 comments

I went running on Tuesday for the first time in 10 days and I did not die. I thought it was going to be awful but it wasn’t. I actually felt pretty strong and I was able to breathe, despite still having some head cold lingerings. I wasn’t coughing up a lung and I kept a pretty good pace.


I did 3.5 miles on my lunch break in 40 minutes. I ran along the river, running with the current and it was nice. I will do it again. I tried focusing on pelvic rotation and it went fine, but the run was more to see how I could hang after such a long hiatus. It was actually really nice to have such fresh legs. And, of course so nice to run in high fall.


And then I travelled.


Now I’m in Baltimore, and gearing up to run today and the next two days. I was supposed to run yesterday but just didn’t have any time. I had to present a poster and a paper at a policy research conference, do some networking, meet up with my parents, eat dinner with my brother, sister in law and kids, and do more networking. So a short run today after conference stuff; I’m thinking up Charles Street to do some sightseeing. Saturday will be a long run around the Harbor. Stay tuned.
