It has been exactly five weeks ago that I last ran. And that was my longest run in a few years, the Phoenix rock and roll half-marathon.
This morning I was intent on running a half half marathon distance, but in the end could only manage five miles because I am definitely out of shape. It was cold and there were slick spots still around so I was careful. My fingers were slightly frozen but my pace was okay and I did not tired out although my legs did feel out of sorts. The route paralleled the Mississippi River and at 6:30 a.m. I only saw one other runner.
