Don’t get me wrong, I love me a good 3-day weekend, but when I go back to work on Tuesday I get so confused.
Did you have a good weekend? I did my first 10 mile run eva! And I’ve felt it pretty much all weekend. The run itself was good, I kept a steady pace for the most part. I did have a question for those of you who have been running for a while. When I did try to take a walk break towards the end, my ankles and legs would just start stiffening to the point where I really couldn’t slow down and had to keep running. Is that normal?
I stayed at my mothers house Sunday night to go through two years worth of my daughter’s clothes in preparation for a yard sale. It was so sad, to see all her tiny clothes and also to see just how many clothes she has had over the past two years.
I did a hot and humid easy run this morning around my Mom’s neighborhood and finished up the last of Amy’s Scavenger Hunts. Well, technically I did the last two she posted since I slacked two weeks ago. So here is what I found.
A red car
A bumper sticker – didn’t say it had to be on a bumper.
A mile marker (this counts right?)
Christmas lights – look behind the lawn jockey, see that lit up tree?
A running trail – can’t wait for cooler weather to take advantage of this running route again.
A water bottle – I didn’t see a water bottle, but I did find a Gatorade bottle and a mini vodka bottle. One’s gotta count.
A curvy slide – not the curviest, but it’s got some slight curves.
Neon clothing – yeah for packing my green shirt!
What I could not find was a sundial (or outdoor clock) or a Disney lawn ornament. I might have been able to find these if I had felt comfortable going into people’s yards and really inspecting what they had in their landscaping. I don’t think the neighborhood watch would really buy the excuse “I’m not looking in windows, I’m doing a scavenger hunt.”
Hope you enjoyed your long weekend!
Did you do anything exciting over the long weekend? Is there ever a point on your long runs when you try to stop and walk and your legs won’t let you? Do you know where I can find a Disney lawn ornament?
