I woke up on my own closer to 7am. Had a leisurely breakfast & coffee and made it out the door for my solo run by 8:30am. I decided to debut the mini dots skirt and strappy top that had arrived in the mail Friday. And since it was about 55deg when I left the house, I added a long sleeve technical top for the first few miles. Sorry, no photos! Just trust me, it is a very cute ensemble. I know this for certain because when I got back home later in the morning, even my teenage daughter commented on how cute I looked. :-)
One of the benefits of running solo is that I can start my run from home, no driving required. Another benefit is that I can run my own pace; no artificial pressure. I took it at an easy pace and had no problems at all with my knee. In fact, I felt like I could have kept going. Next week, I will try running six easy and see how it works out.
Cooled down and had a snack when I got home. Then got the leashes and took the dogs for a walk up and back down my hill for 2 more miles. That makes seven miles total by feet and no knee pain. In my book, Saturday morning was a huge success!
[I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge September 11th. I know that it is an emotional time for many people. For me, it's now tangled up with the anniversary of my father's death (on the 10th last year). It was really good that I could get out and run today. That's really all I want to say about that.]
Nice job on your run! I have been torn about missing breakfast runs with my running group. To meet my running group I am in my car for over an hour. Lately my sleep has been more important but I do miss running with them. I totally get the wanting to run when you feel like it even if it is alone:) Wow, getting a thumbs up from a teenage daughter is huge!
Sounds like a great run! The running skirt sounds really cute. I recently picked one up and I love it!ReplyDelete
I love running from home. It's nice to be able to just run right back home and be done.ReplyDelete
Glad to hear you are not having any knee issues. I'm doing 6 next week too. Did my 5 today.
Your running outfit sounds very cute! I'm glad to read that the knee gave you no trouble!ReplyDelete
Awesome about Saturday! That is great news about no knee pain - and lookin' sassy to boot. You go Lisa. :)ReplyDelete
Sounds like you had a good run and a cute running outfit!ReplyDelete
Glad the knee is cooperating. :)
I hope you'll have another good week!
I'm so happy your knee was behaving this run.ReplyDelete
I have to wonder though, why no picture? I *know* you have a new camera!! ;)
Yay! So happy you had a good run and walk. I allllways run from home, I feel guilty for wasting gas to go run. But if I'm meeting with someone well that's a different story, will gladly drive :)ReplyDelete
cheers to a great success!! :-)ReplyDelete
Sometimes it is definitely nice to get that extra sleep, take your time getting ready and run from home. Glad it was a good one!ReplyDelete
Ahhh, it's definitely nice to be able to just get out there and run on your own! Nice job!ReplyDelete
I'm loving that the cooler temps mean I get to sleep in a little bit more on my weekend long runs! Glad you were able to get out and get a nice run down on your own!ReplyDelete
I prefer training on my own because I like to do my training when and how I want at my pace. I also don’t like traveling for training and prefer finishing a run at home.ReplyDelete
