Yeah, what can I say? Finally, F.i.n.a.l.l.y…. the summer is over, my summer blues gone and winter is fast approaching.
Other might find the darker hours spooky, but to me, it is pure heaven, it gives me some sort of comfort like a warm blanket…. does that sound weird? Am I a weirdo?! Ah who cares?!
I could dance with joy!
Now that it is getting colder, gloomier and foggier, not to forget getting darker earlier and earlier, I am getting in the mood…. in the mood for running!
Actually I just wanted to get some time off running. Usually that lasts for a maximum of one month, but this time I haven’t been running since February.
Yes, you read right:
And the shocking part:
I did not even miss it, nor did I dread or push myself or even feel bad about not running.
I was just too tired, because I started later and later in the evening work. And while other colleagues are/where able to have a sleep in, I have to get up in the morning to get the babies to school, have a nap during lunch (if I am lucky and my youngest sleeps as well) and when I would have a bit time in the afternoon, I have Cash to look after.
But this week I am off work and next week are school holidays which means, I could run this week in the morning after dropping off Cash in his nursery and I can run next week all day before work.
So I am keeping my hopes up for dry weather to ease myself back into running and also hope the best regarding my knees who are always playing up after such long abstinence.
I am looking forward to running around the DT20 route in Reeth and my all time favourite DT30 in Muker up to Tan Hill Inn.
So fingers crossed that my weight training (yes, my dearest readers, I wasn’t all lazy) was a good built up for my legs.
