THE RETURN

Canada Day

It could have been renamed "Peter Day". For the first time in 13 months, I went for an outdoor run. To borrow an expression used in tennis, last year: I retired hurt. 

I went for a 3km run, wearing an appropriate shirt. 
My wife cycled behind me, and saw me complete the 3k at easy pace:
It felt wonderful to be back. What did I do to celebrate? The Mobot!

One week later
I ran the same 3k route at easy+ pace, wearing the same shirt in which I set my 5k PB of 19:15. 
2 reasons for the nice photographs. Happiness, and a great photographer who captured wonderful moments. 

I almost said the same thing in 3 languages: "I'm back," "Je suis retourné,"Ich bin zurück."

The future
I will use a favourite piece of equipment: GoPro camera, both during training and for my comeback race. The comeback race will be a 5k. Videos from both will be  posted. I am still deciding what music I will use. Suggestions not required.
