There’s something about the peace of the morning and the cool air that is nourishing.  The added benefit of a foggy morning gives way to some of the most beautiful sights, like the sun coming up over the trees.  I saw this on my way back from my 3 miles today.IMG_2271

I am still struggling to get back to a regular schedule but today I really felt stronger and went the full 3 miles.  I probably could have gone further but 3 miles was my goal today.  The inside of my left knee had a ping in it but those kind of things are expected.  Saturday, will be my first long run/walk.

The road ahead is always an unknown but just like the guy in the TV ad says,  “A body in motion, stays in motion.”  To train for a long distance race, it takes discipline, consistency, commitment, perseverance, strength, courage, heart and soul.  It causes you to draw upon your inner strength and push yourself a little further than you’ve gone before.  Never increasing miles though beyond 10% a week to prevent injury.

The training also forces you to enjoy the outdoors.

My plan for today…

  • Attend Mass
  • Cook for the week.
  • Fix salads/Eggs (empty jars are ready to fill)

  • Homemade Veggie/Pepperoni Pizza with corn crust
  • Chicken and beef Tacos
  • Hamburgers and Potatoes/Corn on Cobb
  • Refill bird feeders and corn holders outside
  • Some laundry
  • Prep for the week ahead
  • Drink plenty of water – maybe some wine too 🙂

  1. I love running in a foggy morning too. The surprises that awaits you beyond what you can see, and seeing your breath being part of the fog. 🙂
