It is holidays and after the usual few days of feeling blah I have come back to life and have even been for a few runs. Wow – it has been several months without regular running and my body is protesting but in a week or so I’ll be over the worst of it and feeling strong again.
It is good to get a little out of shape every so often ( or so the saying goes) because how can you get in shape if you are not out of shape ? I know that is not logical but it does not matter.
It has been mixed weather these holidays but for running not so bad at all. It is warming up a little as spring tries to sweep the winter away. Plenty of rain and wind but very enjoyable. The Esplanade is lush and green while over the last few days the Manawatu river has been running high. Tonight I ran in the opposite direction and headed through town. A light drizzle but warm enough.
I am aiming for a half marathon in a couple of weeks and then may consider the Feilding marathon in early November ! Here is a link to the half marathon entry.
