All's Right With the World

I'm a little bit excited this week. It's been six months since the onset of overtraining syndrome and FINALLY I'm being welcomed back into full training. I have four sessions this week - one of which is hills. It's also a bit scary. I haven't run hills for six months and it's going to hurt - REALLY hurt. And I'm going to be REALLY slow. Doesn't matter.

Every week lately I've been feeling stronger and stronger when I run. My times in speed are slowly coming down and I'm lasting the session much better. Basically it feels like the sun is shining and all's right with the world.

I've discovered something about myself this weekend. I don't like to sleep in separated beds to my husband. Now before you go and assume it's because we're still so much in love even after 23 years of marriage, I'll tell you the real reason why - it's because my arms are too short. If we're sleeping in single beds (like we did this weekend) my arm is not long enough to span the gap so I can poke him and tell him to roll over when he's snoring!

Hope you all had a Happy Easter.


  1. Haha! How romantic ;)
    I am really glad to hear that you are feeling good again...maybe you'll be surprised at how well the hills go!

  2. Aww...I think letting your husband know he's snoring is awfully sweet- even if it does involve a poke! Glad to hear that your runs are felling better. Yay!

  3. I had no idea overtraining recovery could take 6 months. So glad you're feeling better! Me/ Oh I'm going to Boston with exactly zero hill training--should be interesting to say the least.
    And yes you totally need to poke those snoring hubbys--it's only right!

  4. Funny, it's my hub who is constantly poking me to stop snoring. Hehehe.

    Good news that you can pick up the training again! Good luck with your hills!

  5. Hahhaa, I love the snoring comment (I can totally relate!!). I'm glad you're feeling better and stronger with each run, that's awesome. You will love hills by the summer - promise :). Enjoy the day!!!

  6. Great to hear you are feeling good! Good luck with those hills!

    So funny! Sometimes just a poke will get the snorer to stop. (other times you might be tempted to push them out of bed! ;-)


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you.
