I just got back from a 3 mile run which I did in the amount of time I use to be able to run 5 miles in. Because I don't cover any distance as effortlessly as I use to, it takes longer for me to squeeze a run in, which usually means cutting the run shorter than I envisioned when I set out (a 5 mile run becomes 3).
This leads to not running as often, Hence my running ability has
diminished, I don't run as long, so I don't run as fast, and thus its a
if I don't run for a week or more, I don't feel any tweaks or pain when
I run, but I'm starting back at ground zero in terms of endurance. If I
run every other day for a week, it can sometimes be hard on my body.
I do have the running stroller and now that Boris and Natasha are old enough to handle the impact of being in a stroller moving at high velocity (relative to them anyway) I do take them out on runs during
the weekend. Hopefully a running revitalization can come out of this.
