First run back after a few weeks of forced rest following a little health scare. All is well and doc has encouraged me to get back to training! Hit the trail for what was supposed to be 30ish minutes and less than 3 miles. Ended up chasing daylight and a total of 50 minutes and almost 4 miles after taking a wrong turn. Body felt good, heart was singing. Really excited to get back to it. Hoping this isn’t the last of the decent weather days here in the PNW.
Quick little video from the trail this afternoon to capture all the critter noises. 😍
First legit trail run in Washington today. Yep, you read that right. Only my second trail run since I moved out here with the last being the Smith Rock 7 miler back in August. It was a great run and definitely something I needed. More than I realized. After the run I sat in the Jeep for awhile at the trailhead with the doors open and thought about how my life became too busy to make it to this park 15 minutes from my house. Then I promised myself that I will not let that happen again. On the drive back I spotted a huge bald eagle flying. It swooped down and started directly toward me! It was HUGE! I could also see the mountains in the distance. Mountains I had planned to explore this past summer before work ate my entire summer. And again I made that promise to myself. This is why I moved here. #pnwlife #pnw #bestcoast #wilderness
First time floating. It’s not something I had considered before, but when the bestie said she was going I thought why not tag along! Really enjoyed the 60 minutes floating weightless in salt water in a pitch black pod. Very relaxing. So relaxing that my face looked different after! Will definitely be trying this again after a big workout or race. Thanks @urbanfloatvancouver for a lovely introduction to floating!
Who is this person getting in three runs this week? Almost didn’t make it out but a tiny nudge from the bestie and a gorgeous evening got me out the door. Got in 4 miles which is my longest run since August, I believe. Getting back on track for #htc2019!
Getting out the door this week has been tough. I’ve been battling some significant fatigue accumulated from the past couple months of craziness. Was able to head out this afternoon for 40 easy minutes in my local park. A man stopped me as I ran by the turtle pond to tell me, “the otters are back!” Being new here, I had no idea we had otters in the pond during winter! Super cute. Evidently the tundra swans are back too, but I didn’t see them. I’m loving all the unexpected little things in the PNW like the explosion of mushrooms in the past week, otters, and sunny days even though the rainy season has technically started. 😍
