Wow! I didn’t think I could stay away from racing for a full year. But then it happened.
My last race before my running sabbatical was the Austin Half Marathon in 2015. I took 3 straight months off from running and then slowly added short runs back into my routine. And when I say “short runs” I mean short runs, like 2-3 miles. It was a great time of resting.
But I missed:
- the feeling of wind in my hair while running
- the feeling of happy tiredness after a long run
- my team
So, earlier this year I joined the team again, Team in Training that is. I have joined the awesome San Gabriel Valley (SGV) Team in the Greater LA Area.
This is what our training looks like:
