Sunshine! I love it when the morning sun wakes me up and encourages me into the sunroom for my yoga. It’s such a perfect way to begin a day. I decided to continue my morning with a run in the park. I was heading out in a t-shirt as I received a text picture from my realtor in Breckenridge of his deck covered in snow. I’m glad I’m here, not there!
I stuck to trails and ended up running on the dirt path around the equestrian track. I pitied the cyclists who were riding laps below me, remembering my ironman training months when bike workouts included sprint intervals, going round a round the track. It was even more boring than riding a stationary bike.
On my way back up the park, a bug faced its untimely death by flying into my mouth. Luckily I reacted quick enough to prevent ingesting extra protein. Running with my mouth open instead of breathing through my nose is a sure sign I’m out of running practice! Though I took it easy by my usual standards, the run left me a little out of breath and it feels as though my aerobic capacity has dropped in the few weeks I’ve been mostly walking. Guess that’s to be expected and hopefully I’ll gain it back quickly.
I followed my run with a green power smoothy (recipe is posted on my recipe page) and am returning to the yoga mat for some core work before my violin takes over the day!
