Well I am happy to say that I am finally back to my workout routine. Its been a long two weeks but I have finally made it back to the track.
Yesterday I headed back to the gym with every intent to take it easy. After dealing with gout, I wanted to make sure my foot was well taken care of. As the sun was on the rise, I pulled into the parking lot around five in the morning. I like going to the gym that early cause there is no one there. After locking my gym bag in my locker, I headed to the track.
There was no one there and it was calm and peaceful. Just the way I like it. I turned on my running playlist and my Nike+Running app and took off. I went slow at first just to get my pace then after mile one decided to pick it up a little bit. I was so nice to just run without having to worry about beating my time. My races are done and I am currently not training for anything. This was what running for fun felt like. I had forgotten.
Soon one mile turned into two then three and finally four miles. My foot felt great and I was in a state of “runner’s high”. There really is no better feeling. This month my goal is to run long distance. Why you ask? I have decided to leave the 5K race circuit and start working my towards 10k. This is huge for me cause now my runs are going to be longer and more intense. My next race is….
So there you have it folks! I am heading to Charleston! My training starts on October 13, 2014. I am excited and can’t wait to get started. This is going to be a fun weekend.
Wish me luck!
