It’s been several weeks since I’ve gone on a run longer than 4.25 miles. Today I strapped on the ol’ heart rate monitor and ran my full 7 mile long run. It was about as slow as I expected but absolute perfection. I cross 5 creeks on my favorite route into the country and I stopped at each one to watch the water flow and listen to the delightful sound. I found a bonus water run off on the way back so I stopped a total of 10 times. It was spectacular. The sun was warm but not too hot. I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed a run so thoroughly. I also got two new pairs of shoes today, which is awesome since my soles are coming off my newest pair. Overall, today was the bees knees. My diet has been on track as well. I did decide to postpone my pull-ups because my shoulders/upper back were super tight this morning but I know I’ll get there eventually!
