dirt vs pavement

After seeing a race finishing near Crissy Field yesterday, I was craving a run this morning.  Luckily I got out of the house early enough to beat the rain!  After a short warm-up, I alternated between walking and running, making loops around my new area of the park.  There are fewer dirt trails at this end and I’m undecided as to whether I should seek them out or stick to the pavement.  On one hand, the trails, which are always better for joints, are probably especially good for my pregnancy joints right now.  On the other hand, I’m being extremely careful about my footing these days to avoid a fall and although the pavement does sometimes jump up and trip me, it’s a little safer than dirt and rocks!   I run/walked for 45 minutes before deciding I’d had enough and went home to
my breakfast of champions.  I toasted left-over challah french toast and for an added nutritional boost topped it with cottage cheese, strawberries, flax meal and maple syrup.  Yum!   Of course I’d intended to do my yoga as soon as I walked in the door, but I was too hungry, then got caught up in e-mails.  I finally stretched while video chatting with my friend across the ocean.  I’ll fit the yoga in before dinner!
