Nothing starts the morning off right than an early morning run with a side of trespassing!
We tried a new route this morning. On Tuesdays, we normally run 5 miles. Today, we did 6, and it felt good. The thing about running this new route is that about 3 miles of it was through all new area, so we felt like we were going a lot further than we were; we felt lost half of the time. The good thing about that is that you are not stressing about the running, just thinking about not getting lost.
I am starting to think that I treat every day as tempo day. I am needing to pull back on my speed a little and work on my distance. When I did that today, I was able to go forever. I really didn't even pull back that much, just enough, and I ran almost the whole 6 with Karen.
So on one part of the run today, we had to run through a school parking lot and down part of their running track. The track had two spots that cut off into neighborhoods, so we took the first right thinking that is where we needed to go. When we got to the end of the street, the street name did not match. So instead of turning around, we ran around the block, then cut through some people's yards. It was kind of funny, but I think if I looked out my back window at 5 am and saw three people cutting through my yard, I would freak out or think they were up to something!
We got back on track and made our way back to the church. It was a good run and a good time with Karen.
No run planned for me on Wednesday. I am going to be DEER HUNTING!!! Dad and I are only going the one day. Let's just hope one of us gets something. We really enjoy the meat and the time we get to spend together.
