I haven’t logged any “long runs” yet, but this morning I did hit the treadmill for 45 minutes–before hitting our ongoing deck project. Running is still slow, but if I can break through the sluggish first few runs, I’m hoping to fall back into a routine. It will help, too, when I finish this deck I’ve been building in the backyard since last August (took the winter off). We’re almost done with the framing and then we lay decking! (Building decks makes you wish you had more friends.) I’ll be glad when this out-of-control project is done–when we can spend a holiday weekend sitting on the deck instead of working on it, when I can spend a morning running without the nagging guilt of an unfinished project taking up the entire backyard.
