One more lazy day

Friday, August 24th, 2007

Thursday I was not in much of a mood to go run. Went in to the office for 6 hours, after working from home for 3 prior to that, and worked more from the house afterward. Then Carrie and I went to grab a bite to eat at a local place with great soups, sandwiches with free home-made foccacia breadsticks and cookie with every meal. Unfortunately, I was way too full afterward to get out and run.

Today, worked from home until 11:00 and then went for a run. Sun was blazing, but the wind was whipping and it was only in the upper 80’s. The sun was warm, so I didn’t do any of the usual routes, but ran down the shadiest oak lined streets I could find. Forgot the forerunner, so don’t know how far I went. Ran for about 35 minutes and felt fresh the whole time, so I’m guessing in the neighborhood of 3.5 to 4 miles.

Quick shower and off to work.

Took Tuesday off. Felt nice to do so, but I was ready to do something Wednesday. By 5:30pm I hadn’t been out, so I decided to get a quick 3 miles in. It was actually very nice outside, 85 F and low humidity. Only downside was a 25-30 mph winds, but hey it is Oklahoma, and it helped cool me off even more.

Only had 30 minutes to run, so chose to hit my 3 mile loop and hit it hard. Everything felt great, and I felt as though I was flying. First time in a long time I have actually had to pull the dog to keep up. But I think it was more of him being tired from “hunting” all day. Actually he finally caught a squirrel earlier in the day, and was going non-stop around the yard looking for another after I took the first one away from him.

Good run 3 miles in 24 minutes give or take a half minute.
