Brian and I finally got a chance to move on Saturday and I am slightly getting unpacked, but I got up on Sunday and ran 2 miles. It felt so great! I ran down a road that I know pretty well and know a lot of people on it. One lady even yelled at me "Run Forest Run!" haha
The 2 miles did kind of hurt because I had not run in 3 weeks due to packing, moving and having to clean up so much stuff, but I know after you do not run for 1 week it is like starting over. I was not expecting to feel so great on this run, but it actually felt okay.
I finished my day yesterday and decided I was going to run 3 miles instead of 2 just to see how it felt and if I could do it after not running for 3 weeks. Surprisingly, I ran the 3 miles and I only stopped twice. It felt great! The road that I ran down was nice and there was only two dogs, but they only followed me for about a minute and that was it. It was a beautiful sun shining day and I was dying to run! Now that I got my 3 miles back though and I know I can do it, I can start building on that and getting back into my schedule.
It is true what they said and like I said before, if you take a week or two weeks off, be prepared to have to almost start over. It is not to fun. I signed up for the 5K Gusher in Beaumont, TX and am about to sign up for the Free to Breath Lung Cancer Awaraness Race. I am going to have 3 races in May that I am supposed to be running! I can not wait!
After seeing recaps on the Rock in Roll Half, I am seriously thinking about running this next year if everything is not to stressful next year! It looks like a lot of fun, and it is at a great time in the year!
Today is my off today, so I am unpacking some more and working on a few things.
