animal encounter, gear, Run!, Slacker

Run, Run, Run!!!!!

So Sundays planned day of rest turned into a 4.5 mile trail run/walk. This was after a yummy lunch and a little shopping 🙂  While shopping I picked up a pair Yurbuds.  I could never find a pair of earbuds that didn’t hurt in some way, so I thought I would step up the money and see if it was worth it.  Worn them twice so far, and have to say, pretty nice.

I told myself I was going to take it easy on the trail run, and I did half the time, I ran the other half.  It was a very pretty trail.  Could have done without the snake that decided to say hi, I think we equally scared each other!  I may have to do this again sometime.

Nice little up!

Really liked this tree for some reason

After running on Saturday and the trail on Sunday, I really should have taken a rest day today but I was so close!  After the trail, I noticed that my Nike+ app said 997.1 miles.  I was almost at 1000!!!  I wanted to hit that number so bad, so I went for a run after work.  Figured I would force myself to go easy for 3 laps of the park.  The weather was good except for the backside of the lake, the wind was ridiculous!  And of course, I was running into it 😦

So my ankle was not feeling so great and I was tired, so I was actually taking it easy.   As I’m running, I’m telling myself that my slow today is still faster than when I first started running and this time last year and at least I was getting in a workout.  Of course, while I’m trying some motivational self-talk, what happens?  A freakin’ turbo comes flying past me, leaving me in the dust.  Gee, thanks dude, did you miss my inner pep talk?!  Seriously, he was fast, and more power to him, I was just envious.

But Turbo-Man aside, I hit 1000 miles!!! Hell Yeah,  Little happy dance.
🙂

Hell yeah!!!!!!
Hell yeah!!!!!!

Now if only the average pace was more reflective of the past year, hehe.

Tomorrow is definitely going to be a rest day and since I work later than usual on Wednesday; that will probably be a slacker day.  I’ll get running again on Thursday.

Anyone else have any turbos on their runs?
