I slept in a bit-okay I woke up at 6 am, but then didn't get up until seven am. I meant to get out early to get my run in.
Since we had waiting on my foot verdict, the Coach had said run 5 or 6 miles or whatever over the weekend ( I am pretty sure he said whatever) so I ran 5 miles Friday, none on Saturday (out of town trip) and Sunday I decided I wanted to revisit my "road 11 mile loop."
I have not been on this since sometime last year. It features a 1.5 mile climb, although pretty gentle. Sometimes I run "up" the hill, sometimes I power walk it.
For Sunday, it was already in the game plan for me to "run" all the ups, as that is something I need to work on.
I really want to run up this "right of way" as it's gnarly steep, the next picture might illustrate that a bit better:
As you can see by my Garmin Data, there is a bit of climb about mile 3.2 to almost mile 5. I kept the leg turnover to a "running" motion.
View from the ridgeline at the top. Dark clouds kept rolling through, yet no bad weather happened. It was actually a cool but very humid morning, even with wind!!
Windy but sweating like a pig on top of the ridge.
I spent the rest of the day working on my "farming tan" versus my running tan. That meant I donned my knee high leather boots (we are having copperhead snake issues around our estate) and went out and raked up enough hay for the garden beds. Then I covered the garden beds.
Then I assembled Miss Daisy:
So I have not gotten any domestic (read: inside the house) work done, outside, where I like to be, things are shaping up nicely!
