Lately, I've spent some quality time on my butt in this place:
I've gone through 4 novels, a lot of Girl Guide Cookies and been to the movies a few times. I road my bike on the trainer once, because my husband made me. All and all, it was awesome and my body appreciated the time off. The weather has been crap as well so my timing could not have been better. Snow, grey-ish, cold and rainy has been common, so I was happy to sit in my happy place and relax.
But here's the good news! After 18 days on my butt, I laced up the shoes and went for a run. It was time. I missed the trails. I went for 30 minutes on Friday to work out the cobwebs, went for 45 minutes on Saturday and felt great and then went for an hour and a half on Sunday. Oh yeah. I'm ruuuuuuuuuning!
The scenery hasn't changed. It's still real pretty in my backyard, but somehow I missed fall and winter is coming quick! Mike joined me on Sunday and we cruised the Spray River Trail.I've also enjoyed the company of this guy in the backyard the past couple of mornings. He's been fun to have around until he found the leaves of our new mountain ash, so Keith has now declared him the enemy. They had a stare down this morning and Keith took his picture. Good thing we have a fence.
"I Want Some Girl Guide Cookies NOOOOOW!!"
