I was vaguely thinking to do a quick short out and back, head back the other way and do another out and back, which would bring my miles to 9.5, and then I would repeat the first short out and back for a total of 11. A pretty easy and fairly flat route, but also kinda boring.
As I got to the turnaround point of the first out and back I remembered I have been meaning to run more hills as part of Ragnar training so instead of turning around I headed down the hill. I was planning to turn around after a mile and a quarter down the hill and run up it doing repeats.
I looked over and saw this. See those trees down there. I wanted to run on the road that runs thru the wheat field there. I haven't for well over a month.
The sky was really hazy this morning and made for some beautiful photos. I really love where I live.
- I tried Salted Caramel Gu for the first time today and it wasn't bad. I still prefer Humagel.
- I didn't listen to ANYTHING no podcasts, no music. Just me and my thoughts and the beauty around me. and the birds singing.
I knew today he would be working around the house in the morning so I was able to run long and not worry about being back.
|just a little slice of heaven here on earth.|
Once I got up the big ass hill I had about three and a half miles to go, after the hill I felt like I was flying along on the way flatter road.
Ahhh run done!
