I had planned a short 3-4 mile easy Recovery Run this morning after my walk with this one:
Anyway, back to today's run. I headed down into the sun shiny trail amongst the swarms of people again. See, I told you it's a holiday so everyone must have been taking advantage of the day off + sunshine. :)
At the 1.5 mile mark I ran into speedy Erin. It's funny how that's our 'catch up time'....lol. Of course we both paused our Garmins. ;)
I headed off to the waterfall, (2 miles from home), and was feeling very good. Considering yesterday was 16 miles I was pleased with that. A very cute bulldog wearing a spiky collar decided he wanted to run with me for a while. He looked super friendly and his owner had him off the leash so I giggled and kept running with him for maybe 8 seconds. It was fun while it lasted.
Today's Total = 6 easy miles (and no snakes!)
When I got home from the run, Miss Lola had taken over the yoga mat as her napping area. I lay out the yoga mat so that it's there when I get home from the run to do my ab workouts. Remember my August Goal is to do "Crunches every day?" (Number varies....lol). You will be so amazed that I have completed my crunches/ab workouts for the first 5 days of August. Yay Me! :D
I ate a big bowl of the watermelon from yesterday, made a protein shake and proceeded to enjoy it out on the deck. The sun was beaming and it was so lovely. Then, all of a sudden I thought I heard a rumble of thunder???? I obviously dismissed it immediately since it was super sunny with blue skies. Then I heard it again...............weird.
I stood up and turned around to check out the sky and here's what I saw heading our way:
We had an afternoon of thunder rumbles which left this one, a little scared. Let's make that ' a lot scared.' Yes, Lola is on my lap as I'm facebooking....lol.
So, since there was thunder and not a lot on the agenda, it was a Friends Rerun kind of day with some Pro Compression. I'll take any excuse to wear these awesome purple socks! Left Lane Sports has a huge sale on today where they have 50% off selected styles. Let's just say, Neon Yellows are in the mail. ;)
Oh yeah, I also made a roasted chicken for supper. :D The smell is driving me crazy with yummy goodness. I'm so excited for dinner!
I hope your Monday kicked butt and you got to log some miles in. Tomorrow will be some speed intervals for me. I did 5 last time, therefore I'll aim for 6-7 tomorrow. Wish me luck!
Thanks for dropping in to visit GGR ;)
