Step 1: Take a week off from running so that you’re ready to go, go, gadget legs
Step 2: Make a kickass playlist with some new beats mixed with oldie but goodie tunes
Step 3: Leave the Garmin at home
I love Garmy but running naked every now and then is magical.
Step 4: Run in your favorite spot when the temperature is juuuusssttt right
Step 5: Wear the most mismatched outfit possible
I wish I could tell you that my legs will eventually tan once summer rolls around but that would be a lie #Irishproblems
Ok, so Step 5 won’t do anything except make people wonder if you are legally blind. And most runners will probably disagree about ever doing Step 1. But I do what I want and this run was fantastic. I am guilty of getting caught up in my numbers and bashing myself for crumby times so it was refreshing to run without the arm candy judging me. Also the weather was perfect at 56 degrees and sunny. Happy legs, happy Karen.
What do you do to get back in the running habit after a break?
What were your favorite cartoons as a kid?
I was a HUGE fan of Jem, Inspector Gadget and Doug.
