1. I swear some times I think my garmin is on crack. I’ll glance down at my speed and see 12:** and think “really, I don’t feel that slow.” Then I’ll glance down a minute or so later and it will say 6:**. It happens a lot when I run in the more urban areas near me. I think because of all the tall buildings. Last night I was just running in my neighborhood, where it usually does a pretty good job. It was just funny to see all the random readings and then have my mile pace turn out to be exactly what it felt like. LOL
2. Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous out. Seriously beautiful. It was in the 60s and sunny on the first day of Winter. So, of course, I went for a run. Apparently my legs were not recovered from Tuesday. I felt my quads on every.single.step. I’ve been focusing on form and on running lightly lately, but yesterday I sounded like an elephant running down the street.
3. Yesterday was also the Kindergarten class zoo trip. The animals were amazing! I’ve been going to the National Zoo for years and I’ve never seen them like they were yesterday. The lions were actually playing – one would go over and smack the other and then they’d all run! Of course, the only camera I had was my phone, sigh.
|Tag, you are it!|
|See the orangutan in the window? Shoo was RIGHT THERE seconds before, but trying to get a 6 year old (and an orangutan) to both cooperate = impossible. ;o)|
Today has dawned with beautiful weather again and the boys are home for the break. Unfortunately, our upstairs toilet has a leak I can’t fix, so we are stuck waiting for a plumber. Oh well, I’ll kick them out the front door to play.
Hope your winter is treating you as well as ours is so far!
