I stayed at my parents house Saturday night, but I still wanted to get some exercise in on Sunday, especially since I had to work Saturday morning and had a six hour drive afterwards. The obvious downside of my treadmill (which I still love and use almost every day) is that it's not exactly portable :P. The area where they live is far less hilly than where I live, so hiking doesn't have quite the impact it does here, and also, since I had other plans for the day, I didn't want to take an hour and a half walking through the forest. So I brought my running gear and went for a run yesterday morning — for the first time in two or three months.
All I can say is, my other training (power walks on my treadmill and hiking on the mountain mostly) must definitely be paying off, because I lasted a lot longer than I expected. And from looking at the data from my watch it's quite obvious that of all the cardio exercise I do or ever have done, running is still the most efficient. So I decided to pick it up again and went again this morning. Unfortunately I noticed that it's time for some new running shoes, or at least will be pretty soon. The ones I have are still usable, but if I want to make this my main training, I'll need something better. Which brings me back to my original statement — WHY PINK???
Oh well. I shouldn't by shoes online anyway. I guess I'll get in the car and head over to Hameln tomorrow, since I'm planing to take an exercise break tomorrow anyway.
