I feel that I have had a very productive day on my day off. Unlike some little furry friends. Yes I placed the Gorilla's hand there....hehe.
With the changing of seasons my little Chinese Lanterns are changing too. I'd never seen the inside before, just the beautiful orange shell. Check it out:
Today's Remembrance Day Run with the neighbourhood running group was fuelled by:
Hot Chocolate Date with a friend. :)
Yes, I am still loving my combat boots. :)
As well as this massive and explosive baked potato! The Hungry Runner Girl had recently been posting pictures of her baked potatoes and it really got me craving one! As you can probably see, Salsa is my favourite thing to top it with. :)
What's your favourite thing to top a baked potato with?
Remembrance Day Run
A group of us runners in the neighbourhood got together this afternoon for a quick jaunt through the trail.
We ran a total of 6 miles together. It was great running weather once again today. I thought I dressed considerably cool with my vest and long sleeve shirt, but my body clearly generates a lot of heat on the run since I was pretty much roasting by 3 miles in.
After yesterday's 13.1 mile training run, I wasn't sure my legs would hold up today. But they did. :) My plan was to take it super slow and easy. However when you run with a group, the atmosphere and running chatter can pull you along. We ran a pretty steady pace together and talked the entire way! After we ran together, I ran the 0.3 of a mile home to shake out the legs since we stopped so suddenly and stood chatting. Which by the way I enjoy. :)
51 minutes total
8:10 avg. pace/mile
Now it's off to foam roll I go!
Thanks again for paying GGR a visit. I am delighted when you stop by! :)
Happy Running,Heather :)
