The Rain Stopped!

Finally, the rain stopped.  It stopped about a half day earlier than originally predicted.  I didn’t think would make it out there until Friday, but I got out there Thursday night.  I ran 3 miles on the loop near my house.  It was still wet and if the conditions did not seem safe to continue, I would not be too far from home. 

It was tough at first.  I was not able to get out for a walk at all during the week, so it was 3 straight days of no running or walking.  By the time Thursday came around, my legs were itching to get out there. I could feel it. 

Next on Friday, I went out for a 4 mile run.  This was one tougher. It seems to be, that whenever I take an extended rest period, the second day back into running is always the worst.  Maybe, my legs are recovering from the previous days run? 

Finally, on Saturday night,, I got out there for a 4 mile run once the kids went to bed.  This was a good run. I was able to go fast at certain times and I finished feeling strong.  The forecast for the next week is clear and warming up. I am still on track for 21 days and 85 miles.
