running in blue jeans

the other day was beautiful! it was almost 70 degrees; the last traces of ice melted away. miz nina and i ventured out to our trails for a quick two mile doggy walk. miz nina quickly decided that walking just wasn't going to do it for either of us. the sunshine, the warm breeze, the promise of spring made us feel exhilarated. do you remember when you were a kid going outside to play after being couped up inside for a long time? that's how we both felt! i had on an older pair of running shoes, however, i was wearing blue jeans and a t-shirt. i felt like a kid; just running because i was happy. we stopped here and there. of course there was lots for nina to investigate along the way, and she jumped into the creek (now thawed!) several times. it was really fun. how many times have i just gone outside to run for fun? i think i'll make a point of doing it more. no training. no timing. no schedule. just the joy of being outside, feeling the old legs, heart, lungs do their thing. keeping going as long as you feel like it. ahhhhhhh. try it some time!

today nina and i went out and we did her two mile doggy run. it was not quite as warm today, but still in the 60s. i had on some long exercise pants and a long sleeve t-shirt. the trail is rather muddy, which is ok. the muddier the better in my book! we saw a family of deer that watched us trot by. after nina's 2 miler, i dropped her off, and went back outside for another 45 minutes or so. i completed five miles today, which i took note of. i take my time, but i get them done. i'm still taking walk breaks every so often to keep my heart rate where it should be, but i feel great and look forward to making progress.
