Background down, she is going to see the Doctor today just to get a check up, so I am staying home with the kid (my wife is a stay at home mom) for the morning while she sees the doctor and will go to work when she returns.
My wife thought I would be able to sleep later since I don't have to get back from my run as soon... and here is where my slightly crazy kicks in. My response:
No! I want to catch the view before the sunset and be able to enjoy breakfast. Guess I can't complain about being tired today hah!
Today is a recovery run, an easy paced 6 miles. And it did feel easy and I kept it in the 1-2 minutes slower that marathon goal pace range.
Here is the view when I hit the lake:
My run was very peaceful. I didn't push myself at any point or feel sore. It was 50 degrees with no wind, so it was pretty crisp and perfect. There weren't as many people out as yesterday, maybe because I didn't go down to the Belmont and south area?
The people that were out were mostly my normies, they were friendly, most of them returned the wave/nod. Nice way to start the day!
On my return trip home, I kept an eye on the lake to see when the sun was coming up and then when I could get a decent shot at it for one more picture. I wanted to get a photo before the Sun took up its yellow color, as everyone is up for the yellow Sun, BORING! And its harder to look at.
I caught it with a few minutes to spare. Here is the result:
|I was pretty happy to catch a person running in my photo!|
If I took a shot 5 minutes later, I would need shades on like my daughter and I would be looking at the Sun like this:
Finished writing this just as my daughter is waking up! Time to go!
How was your run today? Do you take time to enjoy the scenery?
