It’s that time of the month…
I’d tell you that I ran my LAST virtual half marathon.
I had already signed up the real half marathons in March, April and May. But as you know, they were all cancelled.
I would be getting the swag so I felt like I should actually run them. I did not race them but just ran/walked that distance alone on three different routes.
I am DONE. I hope the next half marathon is a REAL one.
Did you run any long races that were cancelled virtually?
I’d tell you before I was working from home, I would run after work for 3 miles. Some days I did not run at all.
Now being at home everyday, I have been on most days running before work, walking at lunch and then hiking after work.
So I have gone from 0-3 miles a day to 6-10 miles a day.
Of course that will end…mostly likely when I return to the office in the fall.
Have you increased your mileage during the pandemic?
I’d tell you that I have started seeing my friends. After 10 weeks of self-isolation, we have decided to see each other…safely, of course.
Have you relaxed your social distancing yet?
I’d tell you that I mentioned that I finally got a shot for my painful foot. The pain went away immediately. Though it appears that it does rear its ugly head from time to time. Still!!
Anyone else experience intermittent pains?
I’d tell you that there’s no shame in walking. To prove it, I had one of my slowest 5ks and even posted my time.
I believe this race last year may have been the last time that I ran FAST. After that, there was marathon training, foot pain, then pandemic.
Do you RACE your virtual races? Have you lost speed by not racing?
