I didn’t run on Tuesday, a beautifully warm almost 90 degree day. I played tennis instead.
On Wednesday, I had plans after work. I took a walk in the morning. It was gloomy, misty and cold – 50 degrees!
And then during my lunch break, it looked like rain so I decided to run around the track. That way, I cold stop if it started to pour. I also decided that I would do modified tempo runs. For me, that means, run fast twice around the track, stop for water and continue that until I reach 3 miles.
Then I was free after work for our monthly tennis girls night out – this time we went to Saratoga Paint and Sip.
You sign up for a class and you are instructed how to paint a certain painting (Ours was called “Water Me.”) While you paint, you listen to music and drink.
What a fun time. It is harder than it looks (unless you are artistic.) And the paintings look better in the photo than in reality. We laughed and laughed. I totally recommend it.
The night wouldn’t be complete without some dessert.
Yesterday, the weather was perfect – sunny and cool.
I decided to run on the Delmar Rail Trail which I have done in the past. But this time, I decided to run in the opposite direction.
I wasn’t sure what I would find.
The trail was very narrow in parts. Parts were covered in stones which made it difficult to run on. I ran under bridges. I saw a group of baby red foxes. Then I saw an large grey fox. I stopped at 1.8 miles because I wasn’t sure if the trail continued and returned.
I was glad I was adventurous but it was a little scary running it alone.
Happy Running! Are you artistic? Are you daring in your running routes?
