There but for the grace of oxygen go I
It’s been a while since I logged any miles, so I think this has to be counted as a success, but one far short of what I’d hoped. The good news is that my heart and legs seem to be doing OK, at least so far as today was a test. The bad news is that I left my albuterol inhaler at home. I got about a mile out before I was wheezing so much I had to walk. I walked out to the beach and took a few zigs and zags along the way to catch some side streets I’d never been on before.
So it was definitely not as good a run as I’d hoped. It was going to be a tough run today anyhow but I am rather pleased that I got as far as I did and that my legs weren’t at all weary and my heartrate stayed in reasonable limits. I didn’t do enough mileage to test either of those things under normal conditions, but as it had been a bit too long since my last run, it was nice to see that I haven’t fallen completely to pieces. And the important part — always the most difficult — was getting out the door.

Good to see you running (and posting) again.
How about the same route
How about the same route again today (This time WITH the Albuterol!) 🙂
Probably not today
I think today is a rest day. [Yesterday]([canonical-url:2013/08/13/once-more-time-air]) I did the same route I meant to on Sunday. My legs were painfully tight when I went for the run last night and this morning it hurts just to walk. I’m probably not going to give running another go until at least Thursday evening.
