|I love starting in the dark|
Sunday before I started my run, 10 miles was my target, but I wished I could do 12. It was freakin' freezing when I started running. It took me 3 miles to get my hands warm, I probably could have used gloves.
|My cold legs - shorts ended up being fine for 40 degrees once I got rolling|
I was so cold, but my legs actually felt pretty good, somewhere along the journey, my wish took root and it seemed quite reasonable I could run farther than 10 miles. My plan of action - just keep running further from my house.
Wishing is sometimes associated with day dreaming and lack of action, but it is actually the opposite.
Sometimes a wish is a seed, and seeds can be sown.
Sometimes a wish can shape your plan of action.

My legs were really stiff when I got done running, but I walked a little, did some stretching, and I think I am good now.
|Did a little carb loading the night before my long run|
I forgot to tell you about a few random things from September...
While hubby and I were at the beach we saw a biker roll into a busy street without pausing, and yes he ended up getting rolled onto the hood of the car and landed in the middle of the street.
The biker's response, "It's all good, just give me a minute..." It FREAKED us out, as well as the driver of the car, but he was kept saying he was fine and told the driver to relax, he had been hit before...
Really?!!?, you roll into traffic w/o braking on a regular basis, I guess stuff will happen.
...is there a substance issue going on here?
Also in VA Beach we got to experience F14 Tomcat's flying over the beach parallel....
|Like this! but this is not our photo|
of course we couldn't get a camera out in time, they are super fast and LOUD! Awesome :) You can feel the rumble go right through you.
Hope everyone had a great weekend! I feel a recovery bike ride will be in my plans later.

Anyone ever wish themselves into a few extra miles? Are you a believer in carb loading a little before long runs?
Is Saturday or Sunday usually your long run day? It was hard to "wait" until Sunday!
