I ran 6 miles home tonight with a friend. The last time I did this run was back in the winter and it snowed along the way. My buddy and I were remarking how different this time was–a humid evening with high-80 degree temperatures. Snow in our eyes had now become sweat in our eyes. No more frozen fingers at the end but rather a slurpee treat from Seven-11.
I’m pretty stiff tonight–thinking the lunges I did last night at the gym are adding to the tightness–a good kind of pain though when you know you worked your body hard. We kept a 9:33 pace during the run which was good for me since I haven’t been training yet. If I can rise early enough I may do some yoga tomorrow to stretch the kinks.
I wanted to do a run like this before I head to California at the end of the week (my brother is getting married on Sunday)! I’m aiming to do at least one running adventure while I’m away and take some photos of the beautiful scenery that I will be surrounded by. Maybe I’ll get my brother to go with me for some sister-brother bonding time before the big day. Stay tuned for my California running adventure just a few days ahead.
