I am still feeling some of the effect of the half marathon I did a week and a half ago. I don't think it helped when I was feeling good Saturday and I pushed the pace a little for 8 miles... so I am taking this week super easy still.
I did a trail run Monday for the 2nd Annual Spatula Runners virtual run
, cross training on Tuesday with a HIIT workout, and today will be a rest day.
Trail runs force me to slow down because of the varied terrain and uneven running ground. I also tend to stop and take short walk breaks on big hills or photo ops when I see pretty views like this one framed in between a yucca and a sagebrush.
Right now it is so easy to run on trails or just wherever because the grass hasn't grown back yet.
Cola even had a little excitement getting chased by my grandmothers horses when we cut across the pasture they were in. They were pretty curious about him. They ended up running off down the hill into the corral after this, which was perfect since unknown to me and Cola, my grandma had wanted them in.
I even wore the shirt I won last year in Spatula Runner virtual run.

Have a great Wedneday!
