Windy Wednesday

A few days ago I asked my hubby for his opinion on the weather.  He had been out for a walk and I wanted to make an informed decision re. my Afternoon run. He told me that it was warm out but that I should go somewhere to enjoy the breeze.  Perfect!  There is a Riverfront Trail nearby and it has a lovely breeze.

2016-04-21 17.13.05The first 5k was in an easterly direction.  It WAS warm and there was a beautiful breeze gently caressing my backside and giving me a gentle push.  There were cyclists, walkers and dog owners enjoying the Spring weather.  Migratory birds were nesting and there were bits of greenery poking through the endless brown landscape.

Where did that wind come from?  I couldn’t do it so I decided to do intervals… 500 meter run / 500 meter walk.  This conserved some of my energy AND gave me the opportunity to really enjoy the scenery and my fellow pedestrians. As I stopped to admire one dog, the dog owner asked me if I really ran every day.  I was like.. huh…?  …. how could she know.?  Later I realized that I was wearing my #runeveryday shirt.

By the time I was finished I was exhausted.  When I confronted my husband about giving me a false weather report he told me that what he actually said was ” it is warm out but you should go somewhere to get out of the breeze. ”  I guess I should listen better.  Luckily I had nothing on my calendar for the rest of the afternoon so I had a two hour nap to recover from that windy run.

Happy Trails Everyone!
