Yesterday I received the shirt I won courtesy of Oieselle and Tricia over at Endurance Isnt Only Physical.

Today, though I didnt wear the shirt, I took the sentiment to heart. I got out there and ran for the first time since the Miami 1/2 Marathon.

Running Log
Time:42:42   Distance:4.03mi   Pace:10:35

I didn't know what was going to happen with this run. Not only have I not run in 3 weeks, but I havent been doing much of anything at all in those three weeks. I was a bit worried about what my period of rest would do to my ability to attempt to elevate my heart rate for more than a flight of stairs.

I survived and my body felt pretty good. My legs were not tired and didnt resist getting back into action. My cardio strength took a little hit, and I had some trouble with the fact my heart tried jumping out of my chest a couple of times. This also could be related to the virus I had that (partly) caused me to tank in Miami ;)

1 10:45
2 10:27
3 10:37
4 10:31

Pacing was way better than I thought it would be after a short break. I guess I'm back in action!

maybe the shirt spoke to you giving you no option but to run...I think I would hang it over my bed so I saw it in the morning and felt like I had to run or be threatened by the shirt

oooh...I think Amanda is right. I need to hang it over my head so that I can stare "runrunrunrun" in the face every day. At least SOME of the days its gotta motivate me to get out there ;)
