Me and Edward Hopper

So I took a mini break to give my knee a rest. I ran today 2 miles to test the waters. We will see. I am not going to get too stressed about it though. I feel fairly confident that it isn’t anything serious. Will it keep me from continuing my training? It may. So be it. 

Anyways, another reason I love running is because it keeps me in touch with the seasons and nature in general. The light has shifted. The sun is sharper and brighter and I felt like  I was running in an Edward Hopper landscape.

It is 62 degrees here today! I got to wear shorts today for my run. I didn’t run yesterday because my knee was killing me walking downstairs. I am not one that really gets much knee pain so I am not sure what to think about it. I had to get outside though today though and so did Gus. We hit one of the few options we have for off leash trail routes and ran 3.25 miles. I really do love trail runs, my fav for sure. Knee didn’t seem to bother me. Time will tell. Oh Gus Gus, such a happy dog today.ImageLook how dry it is already, yikes.Image

Up and Down.

Today was a hill workout day. Overall, 4.25 miles ran, 2.5 or so was spent running uphill in 1/4 miles chunks. Bleh, not my favorite way to spend the miles but I will hopefully be thankful I put in the effort. Running up hill obviously is harder but really, I think the killer is running downhill for long stretches at a time. I am anticipating a lot of downhill stretches during the race I am doing. No pictures, all business today.
