… because we haven’t in a real long time.
As a side note, saying “real [whatever]” is, according to my friend Brittany, something unique I do with my speech sometimes. Is it really just me? Okay moving on.
Like I said, it’s been a while since I talked about my running game. With the new year upon us, I figured now would be a good time to fill you in.
In short, I miss it. But I think you might have been able to guess that if you’ve been reading for a while.
I haven’t gone on a run since the Turkey Trot in November – instead, I’ve been doing a lot of ellipticizing (it’s a thing, just go with it), yoga, and weight training. With the holidays, I didn’t get to weight train as much as I’d have liked, so unfortunately some of the results I’d started to see kind of disappeared.
I don’t think I’ll be running again until later this month. There are times when I really want to, but I know that my knee isn’t quite ready to hit the pavement again just yet, even if I ran the Turkey Trot pain-free.
When school starts up, I plan to try my legs at running again and then gradually build up stamina. If all goes well until mid-February, I am going to start training for the Athens Half-Marathon. I would love to end senior year by finishing my second half. However, I won’t sign up for the race until the month before, or later. I don’t want to risk having to lose that money on a race I can’t run. My wallet definitely felt that loss last time.
I think that’s about it for where running and I stand now. I’m going to continue to do cardio, yoga, and strength training until I can lace up the running sneaks once again!
Have an awesome first weekend of 2014!
Question of the Day:
In regards to saying certain phrases… what’s one weird thing you say? I say a lot of weird sh*t since I’m from Pittsburgh, but I love it.
