Two mile Tuesday. It was a blissful 65° F which is uncommonly mild for Arkansas in late July. We’ll take it! One benefit of running in the morning for me is finding clarity - while dodging the neighbors’ sprinklers, I figured out how I want this one stubborn slide to look in my PowerPoint for a meeting this Friday. Ten points to Gryffindor!
Monday called for a 1.5 mile run. Done. Time for Starbucks!
Five mile walk on the River Trail today. Started at Cook’s Landing in North Little Rock, made my way across the Big Dam Bridge into Little Rock, then down to Two Rivers Bridge and back. It was around 90° F for most of the walk but there was a nice breeze on the bridges. There were several cyclists out training for the Big Dam Bridge 100 in September. It’s hard to believe that this is the last weekend in July. Time for laundry. Meh.
This is a brief but very compelling read with excellent insights.
Excuse me while I go dig out my slanket.
This should have been a pretty easy two miles but it wasn’t. The 87% humidity was like running through dog breath. I couldn’t believe how many new homes were being built in the back of the neighborhood. I’ll snap a few pics on the next lap. Enjoy this last weekend of July!
One mile run this morning. This one felt much better than any other this week. This may be due in part to the Chicago-style pizza that we ate in celebration of a friend’s birthday (the guy in orange) on Tuesday night at Gusano’s in the River Market. So many carbs. I can see the weekend from my house.
Two miles in fog this morning. I took it slow and steady. You know it’s time to refresh your running playlist when you realize that you’ve memorized the order of the songs. Need to work on that. Now for a kale smoothie with all the good stuff. Make it a great Tuesday.
One mile in morning fog. There are 33 weeks until the Little Rock Marathon in March of 2015. With several training setbacks this summer, I don’t have enough time to salvage the Chicago Half in September (I was hoping to meet some of my fellow tumblrs!) but there’s plenty of time to get through the build-up phase and transition to a regular marathon training plan. And so it begins. I will turn 50 in January, and then I’m going to run a marathon.
