Is your body as good as mine?
It never ceases to amaze me how feelings can change in an instant. I sometimes find that the start of a run is rather uncomfortable. This morning I got up early for what I thought would be a rather nice run in the country-side. I had not run for almost 2 weeks in the Amersfoort area so was looking forward to it.
Sunday I experienced rather cold weather so I went back to winter preparation – 4 T shirts and a long sleeved jacket, running tights with jogging bottoms over the top.
Minus 6/ 7 registered on my car.
I started out – a bit chilly – still I had enjoyed my Sunday run so keep on going. My goodness! My hands were nearly freezing off. I almost never where a hat but wished that I had. I “stopped” to “warm up” and placed my frozen hands under my T shirts – ummm lively and warm. BUT I really was on the point of turning round. I have NEVER done that before nor was I going to start that nonsense now!
I continued. My hands were shoved up my sleeve but were still cold. I started to shake them as I jogged along. Then, as if by magic, my whole body started to warm up. In fact I wondered if I was going to be TOO WARM! My fingers wanted to come out from the sleeves as my hands were warm and sweaty🙂
It was so good to run through Zevenhuizen and then over the bridge of the A1. Calling “goede morgen” to all the dog walkers and cyclists!
Unbelievable – I had a fantastic run and put on a reasonable pace – amazing that the body works so well!
