This last week has to have been one of the best weeks of running that I have completed in a LONG time.
|From my Daily Mile
I have been sorta faithful with running at least 3 miles a few days a week for the last month.
I really struggled the first 2 weeks. I think I was really in recovery from lack of sleep for a month and being plain ol’ exhausted.
Running one mile was hard 3-4 weeks ago. I had to walk a bit each mile. Frankly, I felt a bit embarrassed.
Running out in the 90 degree desert heat and having no warmer temps above 60 degrees since last year I don’t think really was a helpful factor.
The last 2 weeks, the weather has been cooler by 20 degrees (70’s instead of 90’s)- but I think my leggies have FINALLY remembered what they are supposed to be doing. I have been trying to be patent with myself. Although I am getting bored with running around the red lava rock dirt track.
I don’t feel the speed in my leggies yet but I can now run more then 5 miles without taking a walk break – yay! I know speed will happen in due time, but I didn’t want to push myself the last few weeks before my body was really ready to respond to it. I feel a bit more ready now.

It is nice that it’s all coming back. Slowly but it’s happening!
How do you not get bored with your running routes? Any music or podcasts I need to listen to? If I’m not on the dirt track it’s country roads with no sidewalks.
