It was really beautiful this morning on my run. The temperature was in the high 50s when I was leaving my apartment, and the humidity was low. A really great day to go for a run.
So that’s what I did. My legs were still sore in a few places, but I honestly tried not to think about it much.
Instead, I concentrated on how nice it was out and (finally!) managed to take a few grainy pictures with my phone.
Nice views, right? I remembered this morning that the simple act of going for a run can be really great. Not a training run with a specific time or distance goal, but just a simple run. Sometimes I get so focused on my pace or my time that I forget to look around and actually enjoy it.
But of course, I did still wear my Garmin today. I covered about 5.5 miles, with an average pace of 9:11.
Even though I was still sore, I was able to push through, so I think I am going to bounce back just fine. And I’m actually glad that I was able to take a step back and remind myself to look around a bit more. Turns out, there is some pretty great stuff to be seen.
