I haven’t been able to run for the last couple of days as the wife was out of town. I suppose the dog could have watched the boys in the morning while I ran, but then what would I tell the sheriff when he came to arrest me? Luckily, the wife came back last night, so I was able to run today.
I had to settle for an afternoon run, something I usually try to avoid, because I spent my morning handing out hockey equipment. The youth league I coach in is starting next weekend so today was equipment day. Nothing like handing out some hockey gear to start off your weekend. Seriously though, the kids loved it and they looked so excited, especially the little ones. They can’t wait to get on the ice!
We’re having some unseasonably warm weather in Boston today, and it was about 70 degrees when I set out for my 8 miles. The run felt good. This was as far as I’ve run since the marathon and I feel like I’m ready to get back into 10 milers next weekend. I was able to step on the gas a little today and run a few miles under 8.
Rest tomorrow, and then an easy run on Monday morning. I don’t want to overdo it though, I’ve got my own hockey league starting on Monday night.
