Easing Back In

I'm still getting over the last of this nasty sickness, but it had been weeks since Susan and I had gotten out for one of our long slow runs.   I was hoping that we could ease back in with something short and sweet.  She got a head start on me, but let me catch the tail end of her outing on the greenway and then added a little walking/jogging for a couple miles with me.  Then we did some Christmas shopping and hung out at Starbucks in Barnes and Noble catching up with each other.  Then she split off to do some grocery shopping and I continued on with chipping away at my Christmas shopping. 

I got home shortly before the kids got out of school.  Once they got home, I took off to run to the bank and make a deposit.  That made for about 5 miles total today.  Not bad considering I'm coming off of almost two weeks without exercise. 

Weather is supposed to continue to be unseasonably warm so I might be able to squeeze in a ride this weekend.  I thought I was going to be on mom duty and told Walter I probably couldn't go, but now it looks like my daughter is going hunting with her dad.  I need to text him and see if it will work out to squeeze it in between running my son to/from his scout service work in the morning and his band concert in the evening.  Fingers crossed!
