Don’t know if you can consider this run a full on training run but I got back out there Sunday morning. Saturday night we had a little get together at our house and put the fire pit to good use. On a side note, our family grew up camping in Northern Arizona all our lives and nothing is better than a nice warm fire on a cool Arizona night.
Friends of ours had to drive separate cars to our house so I told them I would drop off one of their cars in the morning and start my run from their house. Dropped off the car, powered up my watch, and away I went. Honestly, I felt really awkward and uncoordinated for the first part of this run lol. I was monitoring my foot and my left hamstring the whole time but they seemed to be fine. I didn’t have a distance in mind since Sunday is normally my day off and I really just wanted to get back out there and shake out my legs.
So I ended up with 1.30 miles from our friend’s house back to my house. My stride started to smooth out after about a quarter mile so that was good. In the end my foot was fine when I got home and no pain this morning when I woke up. Today we are packing up for a quick family trip we are taking tomorrow so I’m not sure if I will have time for a run tonight but it felt good to get the legs working again.
How do you manage your training schedule through the Christmas and New Year Holidays?
