I finally got outside to run some miles today. But that is not the big news. I ran over 6 miles with NO music. Can you imagine the heartache, the agony, the torment, the despondency?…….. (I had a great thesaurus page tonight). There were a lot of firsts today. First, I ate breakfast and then went out an hour or so later. (I always run on an empty stomach). Then, I tried a new path. Actually I started out on a pathway but it took me into town, so I ran around town on no exact path. It took in a lot of small hills and I ran till it was 3 miles and then turned and headed back. Part of the pathway led into a park. We have some very creative people here and this is what they did with old trees:
and one of my favorites:
Another first – I carried a bottle of an energy drink with me. Just wanted to see if it helps to have something to hydrate with. I decided I’m not really thrilled to carry anything, especially a 1/2 full sloshing bottle, so I’ll use my carrier next time.
I may have needed a bigger bottle
I never really felt this good.
Does carrying a water bottle make me look like this?
When I got home, first I checked for those puddles that I am seeing so often. None! Hurray. Then changed from my running clothes into another pair of clean running tights. Am I the only one that wears them
occasionally all the time? I guess they are the runner’s version of sweatpants. Ooooh so comfortable.
Tonight was bath night for the Doodle duo. So far they don’t put up much of a fight.
And afterward, they race around the house, slipping and sliding. But then just as fast, they are sound asleep.
I hope you had a great weekend. Find some peace before you go back to work.
Meditate or just dream. Whatever takes you to that place.
