Well, as I have learned from yesterday’s post, the way to drive people to your blog is to talk about Taylor Hicks. Don’t expect any of those readers to stick around, but thanks to everyone who commented. And yes, I did delete a number of comments that were clearly designed to be inflammatory. Mr. Hicks sure has an interesting following of lovers and haters, that’s for sure. But hey, even the haters spread the word.
Still not quite recovered from my plague, which is disappointing. But I guess when your sinuses are completely congested for weeks, it takes a while for all of that to clear out. Which is exactly what’s happening, to everyone’s disgust. I sound horrible, with all the coughing and nose blowing, but for the first time in weeks, I feel good! No one believes it though.
I updated my running log yesterday and realized just how long it’s been since I’ve really been on a good run. It’s disappointing. I ran a ten mile race in April and now, I’m not sure I could run a mile without stopping. I recently read something that indicated that if you take more than 4 weeks off from running, you should start from scratch, though you’ll find yourself improving faster than a real beginner would. So that’s my plan. I found a beginner running plan and I’m just going to work from there. I figure if nothing else, maybe I can use this as a chance to work on my speed. Yes, I ran a ten mile race earlier this year, but I was SLOW. And this way, I hope to prevent any injuries.
I’m planning to start this new running plan tomorrow. Why tomorrow? Because it’s supposed to rain tonight, and while I don’t mind running in the rain, it doesn’t seem the best way to usher in my return.
