WOW it’s Wednesday already? Where does the time go? Sheesh. It seems like just yesterday it was Saturday and I was running my weekly long run!
Time flies folks!
Tuesday I worked my volunteer job from 12-4 and then I came straight home, changed clothes and got my 4 miles in before I ran out of daylight. I love it it is staying lighter longer now. Only a few more weeks and we’ll be turning the clocks ahead an hour and then we will have lots more daylight! I ran an easy 4 miles down the Sycamore Greenspace trail. It’s fast and fairly flat and it is right near my house, which is really nice.
The thing I love, is NEVER would I have thought I’d be saying 4 miles was an easy run. I used to laugh when people would say that. But each time I go out I can feel myself getting stronger. I told Ralph that when I got home tonight, that I felt stronger during tonight’s run! Running is powerful and the way it makes me feel is 2nd only to the way Christ makes me feel. Empowered!!
I didn’t take any pics on my run, but I shot 2 afterwards. We still have snow here, but it’s melting some. Check out the sunset when I got home. Beautiful!
Today I have a 5 mile run on the schedule and I am hoping to do some yoga stretches and maybe some lifting at the gym. I need to see if my gym buddy (aka my friend Carol) wants to hit up Planet Fitness with me. We’re supposed to get 3-5 inches of snow today into tonight, so I am not sure if I will be able to run outside tomorrow, just depends on the temperature and when I get out of the house!! I am not against running in the snow. I did it on Saturday and I loved it!
Did you run yesterday or today? How far?
Do you feel that running makes you feel powerful?
