Today was my first run in over a week. Unfortunately, my family has not had a great start to 2013. My basement flooded early last week, then my 6 month old son was hospitalized with a respiratory virus on Friday. Thank God that he was released today and he should be fine. It was very tough seeing him sick like that and not being able to do much to help him.
I ran at home on my new treadmill for the first time. The treadmill is really nice, but I need to get used to running on it at home. It is in a bedroom on the second level of our house and it got very hot in the room, even with two windows open a few feet from the treadmill. I will bring a fan into the room next time and will close the heat vents.
4 miles @ 8:30 avg pace with one mile @ 7:30 pace. This run felt way too hard. Not sure if it was all the stress this week, the haitus from running, or the heat of the room. Probably a combination of the three. Hoping to get back into a normal routine this week.
