I’d like to dedicate this song to those like me getting back into exercising or those who have been doing it for a very long time. This song is for you. So, are you trying to get back out there or are you a seasoned veteran? Just curious. Have a good night.
Hard to leave the cool mountains and run down in the heat again, but I did it. Starting to see fall in the fading daylight. Dusk was on me a lot quicker tonight than it has been all summer. As you can tell from the Haiku, I also saw three young deer frolicking about. Guess it is also getting to be that time again as well. Okay, that’s it. Anybody ready for fall? I know I am.
Getting away from the hustle and heat back home for a week-long trip to the mountains. So cool right now that I have to go and find a jacket, and it was so cool and rainy earlier that I actually wore a thin long sleeve to run in. Crazy stuff. When I make the trip up to the mountains I always have to listen to this song when I run. It just sets the mood and the tone.
How was the run? Solid. Walked a bit, ran a bit, that sort of thing. It was nice to just get the legs moving after the drive yesterday. Okay, that’s about it. Hope you guys have a great Sunday.
Nice to get the legs moving after being in the car for a few hours today (also nice not to have those scary skies open up on me tonight). We went to visit family over the weekend, and on the way home we saw not one, but two accidents. The first was the scariest because I actually saw a car wipe out, slide sideways, correct and then come to a stop without hitting a thing. Not sure who was driving that car, but we were all lucky we didn’t get caught up in it. Tough to react when you are pushing 80 mph an hour. The second one we saw was the after effect. Some van was all smashed up in the front, scared kids, everyone looked to be okay. Just glad to be home after all that. Makes you want to park the car and never get out again. So, how was your Memorial Day?
I would have posted this last night, but by the time I got home it was already pushing 8:30. Had stuff to do so I did that right quick, had a bite, then relaxed. Just didn’t feel up to hopping online. Anyway, it was a great walk/run. I made it up to five miles, which is a great thing for me. Longer segments of walking and running – especially running. I am trying to get back to more continuous miles so it is nice to have a night like this. Had to post about it even if it was the next morning.
It was also a cool night for May. I think that helped as well.
Sidebar: Discovered something dangerous this weekend, cast iron cookies. Basically take cookies and instead of using a cookie sheet to bake them just use a cast iron skillet. So, so, so, so good. Trying to cut back on sugar, believe me this doesn’t help.
I hit the treadmill on Thursday so I could save my legs for this day. Always do more distance when I’m outside, and especially on days like today. Nice to just go and go. Hope you are having a good Saturday.
Nice run today, just barely got inside before the ran started pouring down. I spent most of this walk/run in a steady mist with occasional rain drops, which isn’t bad if it is warm, but if the weather is cooler it can be a pain.
