I went out to run and made it two miles before I needed a walk break. I walked a mile and tried to regroup. Ran another mile and started walking again, I did eventually run one more mile, but it was a rough morning. Humbled?! yes completely...
I gave Monday a thumbs down
I walked a few brief moments during mile two and mile three, but it went better than Monday.
My new running shoes came - Brooks Glycerin 12
Yep, another humbler. Almost 80 degrees when we started running at 6:35 a.m. Ran 3 miles and had to take a 5 minute walk break, ran 3 more miles, technically we blew 10K Friday, but we didn't care it was so hot. Humbled, bordering discouraged...
It was pouring rain when we started out journey...
We saw Eagles perched in the tree topsLuckily it stopped raining by the time we got to the winery
It was a little prettier on the boat ride back.
We saw this cool ancient telephone booth and french fry statue riding home from the winery.
Sunday morning I felt worn out. We had a little wine on our tour and a few cocktails Saturday night...
My legs felt heavy right along with the haze. It's hard to describe how heavy I felt the entire time I was moving.
This was my strategy Sunday. I just wanted it to end. I had time to run longer, but I couldn't. Humbled? Very...
If I had to describe my running in one word for last week it would be humbled, what would your word be?
Does wine zap your energy?
Anyone ever run in Brooks Glycerin's? They are feeling pretty cushy :)
