OK. Confession. I went for a run last night after I said I was giving myself another week before I would get back to it. Yesterday marked 10 days since running the New Jersey Marathon. It was a GORGEOUS Spring evening.

i had just walked with Duncan around the neighborhood for a half hour.

There are big barking dogs in the yards of the houses on this street so he always makes me walk in the street for this block. He’s prefers to be far away from those loud dogs.

It was also the first day nothing hurt. My hip felt good, my ankle felt good, my knee felt good. So I made a last minute decision to just go run a little bit. I’m so happy with my decision. It was the free-est 2 miles ever:

I came home, stretched, foam rolled and then had the last glass of wine from the bottle I started on Monday. 🙂

This was my Monday night, and my Tuesday night

This was my Monday night, and my Tuesday night and my Wednesday night

I woke up this morning feeling good. I’m still going to lay low in the running department though. Maybe wait until the weekend to run again. I’ll see how I feel. But for now, those 2 miles put me in a good mood and i can carry along today.

Do you do most of your running (or any exercise) by a watch?

Do you like wine? If so, red or white?

Do you have trees in full bloom where you are?

  1. I LOVE wine. I prefer red, but a glass of chilled white wine in the summer really hits the spot. I always wear my garmin when I run. I can’t help it. I definitely already have a watch tan line.

  2. I pretty much always have a watch (or the info on the treadmill) for my runs – I’m a total data junkie and love keeping track of my mileage.

    I don’t go out of my way to drink wine, I prefer beer, but I do have some from time to time. Red, preferably.

    The trees have gone crazy here! Pollen everywhere! You know, and pretty flowers 🙂

  3. Yes, I pretty much always have my watch on when I run! If Garmin doesn’t record it, did it really happen?

    Yes, I like wine. I prefer red, but these days I’m loving some Ciroc with orange juice on the rocks.

    Yes, I live in the southeast, so we have had blooming trees for a while now! Temps in the high 80s and low 90s lately!
