Generally this is High Five Friday but I am taking a Vacation day...which means I will not be sitting in front of a computer :)
Plans for the Day:
Time with Muscle Man and the Little Studs
Oh Happy Day..
My run yesterday was GREAT!! I have not felt comfortable solo on the trails near my new office.. Yesterday I had an idea. I stepped out of my office and started running along the sidewalk until I got to the dirt/clay path around the Fitness Center. One lap and I realized the loop was just over 1 mile. SCORE!! The path is well lit, near a busy parking lot and busy with people mid day. SAFE!!
-Dude with shape up shoes
-Girl with her hair down running like Phoebe toward the fitness center
-Man with safety goggles first lap, no goggles second lap, goggles again 3rd lap, funny!!
-Women one who said "Good work" and smiled!!
I had a side ache for 3 miles, not sure why?? It past eventually and I was able to gain some momentum and SPEED. 7 miles at 8:34 pace!! The funny thing is that I just went on autopilot, did not worry about my pace, my body remembers and my happy pace is back. LOVE IT!! I am DONE with putting pressure in myself, I just want to RUN. And that I did.
