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.
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 🙂
Enjoy your Sunday!
