This morning's lack of electricity was due to a pretty intense thunderstorm that came through last night. The positive in all this: with the rain is a "cold" front, so at least Christmas will feel like Christmas....but, it will be rainy. That's okay, I'll cozy up in front of the fireplace at my parents' house.
I had planned on posting a new, delicious recipe for y'all this morning, but the chaos of no electricity kept me from uploading the pictures. :(
So, I'll tell you about my run yesterday!
Ever since my half marathon 2 1/2 weeks ago, I have lost my running mojo. One 5-mile run was all I'd completed since the half. For some reason, I have been intimidated by the idea of running. I have no clue where this came from!
So yesterday, I decided enough was enough and after work I geared up, leashed up Lola, and we started jogging. Why was I so scared? This wasn't so bad. At least, for me it wasn't...Lola is obviously terrified of Christmas decorations, and our route had A LOT of them.
My goal was 5 miles, but I realized after the first couple of miles that I hadn't planned a route, so I ended up running 6.27 miles. 10K for the win!
It felt good, but I'm already sore. I'm anxious to get back out there and run again! I think I got my running mojo back. :)
Be on the lookout for a new recipe tomorrow!
