After a fairly relaxing Christmas vacation it’s finally back to the grind. I have to say that I really loved having hubby home for over a week. The kids loved all the extra play time with him too. It’s always a sad day when he has to go back to work. Even though all 4 of us were sick for a good part of his time off, we still made the most of it.
Now that we’re getting ourselves back into a routine, it’s time for me to get back into half marathon training. Admittedly, I’ve kinda fallen away from running since my October half, running just a handful of miles since then. I’ve still be swimming and doing spin so I figured that getting back into running (especially on the plan that I’m doing) would be a cinch.
Famous last words.
My first training run was a meager 3km done at a nice easy 7:19/km pace. No problem right? Wrong. I ran it a bit faster (7:10) and I swear I was ready for an ice bath after. Where did this half marathon legs go? I’m not sure but I do know that my treadmill got the better of me. It downright kicked my arse.
Welcome back to the half marathon training Fit Mom…welcome back indeed.
