In lieu of the running clinic, I went to run at the local high school track. My running pal was unable to go to the clinic today, and gabbing with her is my only reason for going! So I went to run alone. I listened to the Burning Twenty podcast. I did two easy miles around the track at an average pace of 11:29 per mile and an average heartbeat of 165 bpm. That pleased me because I can remember when such a short distance done "easily" was at a 12:30 pace or so. :)
After the pleasant run I went to get groceries and made a quick trip to Home Depot to purchase a much-needed closet organization kit. When I got home I spent some time in the backyard (see photo above). The weather was just PERFECT. After that I began assembling the closet kit. Soon thereafter my husband came home and we finished up the closet together. Teamwork is fastwork!
This week I aim to run maybe twice before the weekend... but we shall see. I think I am learning to embrace the act of "taking it easy" at last!
