Got out for a run on Wednesday night. For those of you in the North Eastern US and Eastern Canada you’ll remember that we got WALLOPED by one heck of a winter storm on Wednesday. The snow was mid to upper shin high (not sure what that amounts to in inches or centimetres, but really who the hell cares?). It was A LOT of freaking snow. It was the kind of snow that made it feel like I was running through sand, only not nearly as warm. I must admit I daydreamed about running on a sandy beach throughout the run. Sigh – that would be so fun right about now.
My neighbour and I did our usual route but are now up to running 2.5 minutes and doing a 30 second recovery walk. Next we’ll begin a 3 minute run with a short recovery walk, then progress/jump to doing a 5 minute run with a short recovery walk. Here’s the graphical representation of our run for all you visual folk:
We’re on par for doing the Frosty 5K that I ran in 2006 and in 2005 the first weekend of March. I *hope* to bring both of my babies in the jogging stroller for that race. What’s next? I dunno. Maybe the Dupont Spring Run-Off 8 K in High Park in April followed by the 10K race at the Mississauga Marathon in May? Is it possible that I could do a 1/2 marathon next fall? Or am I getting way too ahead of myself? Either way, it feels completely awesome to be running again!
