I’m huffing and puffing. Not a fan of wearing anything extra for running, the triple-layered mask I am wearing feels like I’m breathing through a straw. And all I am doing is casual running.
“Casual” because the Coronavirus has cancelled all my races. So I have no targeted goal other than maintaining my running habit. I run three times a week, all at easy pace. And it has been fifteen months since my last marathon.
In these times, I feel that I’m getting slower and slower. One reason is my weight. The extra pounds I have put on means more I have to carry. And since I am not pushing myself in running speed or volume, I am not as fit as before.
All good. Not complaining.. Just maintenance runs.
Have you noticed any change to your runs?
