I sent hubby with a list of things he had to pick up for me, that I haven't been able to find here in Germany, and he also brought me a surprise! He arrived home yesterday, and you can see the lovely diamond ring he brought back as a surprise below.
Then today we went for a run together. It's only my second run in the past two weeks. I ran a 20km race in Paris on October 15th, and took a few days off after the race to let my legs recover. Well, a was able to get one short run in before falling ill. I'm unfortunately the type of person who can't exercise when ill, otherwise I just make myself worse, and my illness lasts longer, even if it's just a head cold. So I ran once last Sunday, and then hadn't ran all week, while I was fighting a sore throat and sinus cold.
Fortunately, I'm starting to feel better, so hubby and I went for a short, easy run today. I have no idea how far we went, as I didn't care about distance. I just wanted to get out there, stretch the legs, get some fresh air, and start running again. We ran for 40 minutes. It was slow, my legs were heavy, and it took a lot out of me, but it's a start back. I have about 2 weeks to get back into the swing of things before we start training for a spring half- and full-marathon. We're looking at running the Frühjahrslauf München - a Munich half-marathon on April 1st and then the Vienna City Marathon on April 29th. Hopefully Munich will have a typical winter, and not another winter of record-breaking snows, so we can get our long runs in. But if we have a hard time getting our long runs in over the winter, we'll just run two halfs in the spring, instead of a half and a full.
