|Goob & I on a daily walk in Shanghai|
I fell off the running bandwagon while battling my injury known as "Living in Shanghai, China..." for 6 full weeks. I tried my hardest to hold on to that bandwagon's taillight and after being dragged for a couple miles, I let go. Ego bruised and Running Skirt torn, I decided walking around the city was a safer, easier bet while taking care of the Goober monster 24/7. Alas, it was defeat for the moment. *le sigh*
What does 6 weeks of non-running do to a runner? Nothing. It seriously turns you into nothing. A big pile-o-nothing. My endurance is completely gone, and speed is lacking. My lungs burned after a mile. HA! And I'm a "Marathoner," folks. Embarrassing, yes. But you know what?
Running felt GOOD.
I have a HALF marathon to train for--and it's in a month. Another HA! Not looking for any PR's, that's for certain. But it's a goal for training.
So with that I say, BOOYAH. I'm BACK!
