Welcome home, Lindsey!
Cuteness side story: I left notes everywhere in the apartment for Brandon (the Boyfriend) to find before I left on Tuesday. When I came home, he was standing at the door
holding up this:
In case it's hard to read, it just says "I love you too", and yes, my boyfriend probably does have better handwriting than me. Oh well. Still, he's so freaking cute sometimes... :)
Anyway, home sweet home, and back on the trail here. Today's weather:
And, once again, over-dressed:
To be fair, the report was cooler before I left. Oh well.
It was a pretty basic 3 miler. I hit a kind of second wind right around mile 2, and I felt awesome and strong, but other than that not much of note.
Hunting season is definitely approaching quickly, however. I heard all kinds of gunshots while I was out. I've made the unofficial decision that I'm going to run in town during deer season, just to be on the safe side of things. I mean, I trust hunters and all (my entire family does it), but I think since I'm running by myself all the time, and usually coming home to an empty apartment, it's probably in my best interest to err on the side of over-caution.
In other news, after reading Caitlin's blog this morning, I was inspired to take on a new challenge:
This site gives a 6 week training plan to work up to doing 200 consecutive sit-ups. My mom and I have talked about what I would need to do to work up to running my first marathon, and strengthening my core is high on that list. I did the initial test this morning, and sadly only eked out 20. :( Yeah, my core needs some serious work. I'm excited to see where this goes!
OK. Time for some food. Have a great day, all! :)
