|Gobble ~ Gobble! Okay, it's me standing by a bunch of wild turkeys we saw around mile 8 that you can't see in the picture because it was taken with my phone. You also can't see (very well) my super cool new Under Armour shirt/jacket thingy that my sneaky husband bought me at Dick's as a peace offering! Long story. :)|
I talked my reluctant husband into going on another long run with me today. He was still feeling a tad sore from our run on Tuesday, but I convinced him that there is no better way for us to spend our "kid-free" time together than by going on a run...or a hike, but there's too much snow in the mountains now for that. :)
We did a 12.8 mile loop and today we used the run/walk/run method doing a 3 minute run to 1 minute walk ratio. I'm telling you, I haven't felt so good on a run in a long time. Even as it started to snow a little bit, it felt refreshing and peaceful. By the time we got back to the house, I felt like I could have kept on going. Chris, on the other hand, was ready to be done at that point. I'm actually pretty impressed with him, since he normally only does a couple of runs a week, one longer and one shorter, sometimes one more, but two 9+ mile runs within a couple of days? Awesome!
