I am one stubborn woman.
Tonight, that was manifested in running with Eleise during a storm– though mostly humidity, thunder and lightening. Just a sprinkle of rain. We both considered rescheduling for tomorrow, but in the end we were game for the challenge.
It was only a short mile anyway! We reasoned if we stayed close in her neighborhood, we should be fine.
All I can say is, WHAT A FEELING! The wind was so loud and strong I couldn’t hear anything she said.
And to my absolute JOY, there was no awkwardness. No pain in my legs or feet, no trouble breathing. It didn’t feel like I had taken a running break. I didn’t feel I had to start over– it was easy. It was probably the easiest run I’ve yet had.
We made it .91 miles before the lightening was getting brighter and closer, and we returned to safety at her home.
Our time was 10:48.
But sadly, the sound is now iffy on my phone. I put it in some couscous, since I don’t have any rice. Hope it works by tomorrow!
That’ll teach me to stuff my phone in my sports bra when it’s raining!
The bottom line was that I missed running for 9 days, and I wasn’t about to allow 10 to happen.
Today was my return and I wanted to stay on schedule. Mission accomplished!
