Back to the running grind! It felt good to get back into running mode after my bout with Bronchitis.
I started slowly working my way up in my recovery runs on the treadmill. Then, I finally ventured outside and it felt good to hit the pavement again.
I need to get in the habit of getting out before the sun come up because this later morning run was tough in the heat. I know you’re supposed to be prepared for any weather for the day of the marathon, but I’m hoping it’s not an 80 degree day!
I decided to wear a handheld water bottle, since water fountains are in few supply along my route. It felt great! The sloshing took some getting used to, but I needed to stay hydrated. I got 12 miles down on this run. Only upping the mileage come week 12! Happy running!
