I ran yesterday

So after the 5k a while back I was severely disappointed in my ability to run.  I knew I had just gave blood a few days before, but I didn't think it would have that big of an effect on me.  It did.  It was hard and my heart rate stayed in the 190s anytime I ran/jogged.  I knew I hadn't ran in a while, but I didn't think I was in that bad of shape.

Yesterday proved to be different.  I ran and my heart rate was right where it had been before I quit running.  I can't say that I am right with where I was, but I can say that I can certainly run more than 3 minutes at a time like I was when I started running last time. I made it my usual loop in just about the same time as I previously had, granted my legs were well rested so that really helped. 

Anyway, I ran.  It felt good, but I am sore today.  I am going to try just doing 3 runs this week to give my legs a chance to catch back up before I really make them work again. 

Thanks for reading!

I have not been running

Just wanted to give you a heads up for anyone that actually has been reading this.  The last day I ran is actually the last day I blogged on here.  (Other than a 5k I attempted to run about 2 weeks ago) I was dealing with a few issues and so I had to stop running for a bit to recover from it and haven't been able to get myself to start running again.

I am hoping to start running again next week.  Just have to start from scratch again, so its not going to be fun. 

Also, I am going to need new shoes before too long and I have always been a New Balance fan.  In-fact, I have wore the same series since I was in middle school.  They fit my feet perfectly.  However, I want to try out the new Vibram five finger shoes, so I have a decision to make, plus I have to save so that I can actually afford them.
