Your's truly came off the bench to run a 4 miler this morning. Since I've been nursing the cold, I wasn't sure what I was going to do once I got there. It was spitting a little rain when we pulled up but it cleared up about the time the gun went off, so off I went. I walked the first half mile or so to warm up and then I would run about two blocks at a time, walk six, and repeat. I kept my heart rate low and enjoyed being out and being able to complete the four miles after having the grabber earlier this year. Even though I didn't run much, or fast, it was the first running I've done in over two years and it felt good. My time for the four miler was pretty slow. If it wasn't so cloudy they could have used a sundial to time me but that's OK. I wasn't the last one in and even if I would have been, it was still a PR as far as I was concerned.
Pretty much squandered the rest of the day. Showered up, watched the Bears, worked the crossword puzzle, took a little nap and wrote this up. I'll finish the day with a little more football and try to get through a little of the magazine pile. All in all, not a bad way to spend the day.
Hope your weekend was equally productive and let's all have a good week.
