Yes, it has been quite some time since last I ran. Twenty days, to be exact. And my break from exercise has had its detrimental effect. I decreased over a minute in my pace per mile.
I’ve not any plans to proclaim a commitment to improve my effort. I’m just looking to get back into my usual routine of running. Nothing more, nothing less. Part of today’s intent was simply to move. I wasn’t looking to break records in pace, heart rate, or distance. I simply planned on generating a sweat. And what with the weather – it had just stopped raining before I left the house – sweating was not a problem.
