I did get my 4.5 miles in over lunch yesterday. My legs were tired from Fit Ball and the first 2 mi felt kinda sluggish. When I hit my turnaround point I said to myself, “Come on Leana, tired is a state of mind and you are not tired.” The back half felt much better after I said that! It was a busy day on the pathway over lunch as tons of people were out trying to enjoy the last of the nice weather before winter arrives. I ran into three coworkers along the way. Fall is definitely here – the leaves are all changing and the pathways are strewn with them. Luckily the temperatures are still nice enough to give the ol’ running skirts a few last glimpses of sunshine before having to be packed away and replaced by the running tights.
The hockey game was okay last night. Preseason….what can I say? It looked like it was going to be a rough night after San Jose scored two goals in the opening minutes, but Calgary fought back and won it in a shoot out. Hockey made for a late night and it was a serious rush out the door this morning. Apparently I was so rushed that I grabbed two shoes and put them on without paying attention. I was a block from work when I realized that those two shoes didn’t match…. Yeah, who is acting their hair colour today? Thank goodness for my runners in my gym bag, and at least I have been able to provide my coworkers with a good laugh this morning. Today I’m aiming for 4 mi over lunch. With the post Fit Ball run, yesterday and today I’ll hit my 10 midweek miles. Yoga tonight, and who knows what tomorrow… Hopefully matching shoes at least.
