My quad is feeling better after a weekend of tennis balls and Tiger Balm so I headed out for a run today. I want to get my mileage back up, so I set out to do 3.5 miles. And I did, and it wasn’t great– but it’s done.
The terrain around here is variable, ranging from long, rolling hills to big dips down to creek beds and back up. Edge-of-foothills stuff. When I’m driving around I never really register the terrain as changeable, unless I stop in my manual car headed up a hill. But when I’m running I am intensely aware of when I’m running uphill– even a small grade is obvious. Luckily, so is downhill!
Yesterday we had tacos for dinner. (Taco-graphic awareness? Groan.) I love tacos, and I ate several. They might be a Sparklefood for me– you know, those amazing foods that can bypass my ‘I’m full’ sense– but I like them a lot and eat them rarely so whatever! Om nom tacos!
