I got off my lazy bum before 10 and went out for my "around the house loop" and added in a lap around the Westerly HS Track. Figure that works nicely with my remembrance loop around Wilcox Park? Wow the track is nice and squishy too, weird. I didn't really think of anyone in particular on my Wilcox loop, what was I thinking of? who knows, probably just to not twist my ankle on the uneven slabs around the fountain. When my MCM training starts the loop in the park is dedicated in support of or in memory of someone with lung cancer.
|Fountain in Wilcox park, and the granite is uneven, although really doesn't look it... hmmm|
What motivates you? What keeps you motivated? Are you competitive with yourself? With others?
I felt pretty good after my run and a shower, and the humidity sees to be waning, yipiee!! Hubb decided we needed to rekindle the Sunday lunch tradition (tragically ending when 10 Sandwiches burned in March) he agreed with my suggestion to go to The Malted Barley for Pretzel Sandwiches, and a beer. Heck if I'm going to feel dizzy anyhow... After that I packed up the elder dog, Gizmo, for a hike at Bluff Point to explore some trails. We were out there 104 minutes, I did something or something happened to the Strava App and it cut a nice straight point A to point B line and point D to point C line when I knew we twirled around on trails for the missing 54 minutes (Stravagate anyone?) We go at under a 20 min/mile pace, I'd say we went 5.2 miles.
That old pup is going to sleep like the dead tonight. He is going strong for a 12 and 1/2 year old boxer boy.
Beth, thanking you ALL for the motivation to get some miles in, and feeling better (just in time for work on Monday phttt)
