Time for the annual update on my running activities........ Last year's summer enthusiasm petered out quickly and led to almost zero running between September 2016 and April 2017 - I think it was 4 runs over 8 months. Not surprisingly fitness is at all time low and weight all time high.
So starting this May I decided (once again) to get back in shape. And (once again) it's going very poorly. I have found it very hard to get excited about running frequently - primarily because it sucks when I am so out of shape. But I have found it much easier to run when I am traveling. I've run 13 times away from home (Davis, San Diego, Paris, London, Dorset, Chicago and Maui) but only 4 times here at home.
Guess I need to travel more if I really want to get back in shape although it usually involves far too much eating/drinking so I'm not making much of a dent on my weight!
