My journey as a long distance runner who started the sport later in life.
Day and Date: Sunday, July 6, 2014
Activity: time – 8:10 am, duration – 54:23, type – running, intensity – long slow distance (6:52 min/km pace)
Feelings: I was eager to get out and get my Sunday morning run over with. I wanted to go, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes a LSD run feels best when it’s over. This area is tough to run in because there are many hard hills (see image), there has been so much rain that the grader has left the road gravel very loose, and you never know when you might meet an unfriendly dog or two. With my hand sore and stiff the dog thing is really a key issue.
Nutrition: Today has just started and I have so far eaten a banana, two small naan breads with butter, and two coffees with almond milk. With leftover curried lentils and cauliflower in the fridge (thanks, mom!) I am well on my way to earning my full fruit and vegetable points for LWC today.
Body Assessment: It still feels fine, though I really must investigate my foot because it seems like the toenail of one toe is digging into the side of its neighbour. This is not comfortable when I am running.
Gratitude: Today I am grateful for:
