Age is just a number. Yes, they said that. But, it is not just a number when you started having random knee jolts and pains. That happened to me for almost two months and that is one of the reasons I did not go out for the whole month in February. The other reason- I was being lazy and avoiding snow, wind and cold. I know that's not ideal when you are passionate enough to run. But, it happened and I cannot undo it.
So, it was almost a month and a half and I was out yesterday. The weather is still chilly in here with strong wind and sub zero temperature. I braved the wind and chill on my two layers of running gear. It was not an ideal condition but I managed anyways.
it showed in my running that i was not active for months. I could not complete the 4k that I had in mind. I had to pause for more than 10 times to complete this 3k lap. Things change when you don't run. At least it was a good practice. I hope weather will be more on our side in the coming weeks and I get to run more often.
I am looking forward to 2021 summer with less severe lockdowns and open restaurants. P.S. it's not about getting old but it's about getting lazy.
