Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

Needless to say it was a long two miles.

I'm supposed to run 6 on Wednesday, but I'm going to wait and see how my legs feel. I may put it off another day to let them rest because this weekend I'm supposed to run another 7 miles. Saturday took more out of me than I thought.

I'm going to try to start back strength training. I hate it. I have yet to get 'into strength training'. But I'm going to try to see if I can work 2 days of strength training into my work out routine.

Hopefully my legs will cooperate with me this week and I can get the rest of my runs in...
