It was about 56deg and just a little wind when I set out for my long run yesterday. Have I mentioned how much I love living here??? :)
I didn't want to do another Saturday run on the treadmill, so I packed a little cooler with water, and had mapped out a 3 mile loop and I knew a 4 mile loop from there, so to get 10 it was easy enough to do putting me back at my car for water. I did carry my little 10oz handheld which I hate but I knew I would want water along the way if only just a bit here and there.
It was flat on the first 3 mile but the 4 mile loop I took the trail and it has hills plus after getting back the 2nd time I hit a hill there near my car that I just ran up and down getting in some extra hill work just because.
I miss having water stops and a route someone else plans for me, but that's just the reality for me now.
I will be home end of month and will run with KW then for a 13 miler, then since I will be home for Christmas, my last long run before Houston will be with KW as well so that is great for me. By then its gonna be colder than hell here and I would probably end up having to do it on a treadmill which makes me nauseous just thinking about...I'm sure a few of my long runs are going to have to be done inside. Bummer.
After finishing up I decided to drive into Cheyenne to get my toes done and a bit of shopping. Along with eating a huge hamburger and fries at Chili's. Its the little things that make me happy. I took the drive alone since P was heading North for the day to float the river. Too cold for me to do that even if they were in a galvanized tank. :)
Scenes from the week:
|P and I went to see DKR's Friday night. SOOOOOOOOOOOO good and I was so excited at the ending!!!|
|Along the Oregon Trail. Anyone know this national landmark?|
|Pine Bluffs WY. I pulled over at a rest stop to see the magnificent views. So pretty!|
