After a few Weeks off This is a 2-part Run 15-miles Total, Stopped for Ice Cream

They say if you don't use it you lose it? I'm talking about running, come on, what are you thinking? Well the last time I ran was 17 March and I swore I'd never take more than a week off again. Turns out I didn't lose it and was able to make a few medium range runs. Although, not as fast as I should be running in April, but I made the hauls (like a slow movin' train). After recovering from some pretty hard-core blisters I didn't run much. Hell, it looks like March sucked for running, only four runs in all of March.

Okay, here's the skinny, since the 17th of March I got heavily addicted to Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Modern Warfare 2 for the first week and a half playing non stop! It's fair to say I was somewhat of a couch potato.

And then, I caught the damn flu and ended up sick as a dog for the last week. So after finally feeling better, I decided that it's about time to get hoof in' it! But I felt sick as dog running home after eating so much in between my runs today! After today's runs I only have 200 miles in for the year about 75-miles in January, 75 in February and a measly 25 in March. So far it's a good start with April, but I need to maintain my 20-miles per week standard to get back into comfortable 7mm's.

Note: Scroll down past the first run to see the stats from the second run.
