Cheryl ran 20 miles yesterday, so tonight, we decided to take a recovery day and walk around he country roads instead. It has been a while since we actually “walked” these country roads. Ever since Cheryl has taken up running, she now thinks walking is too ‘slow” and would rather the run to get it over with faster. For me, the only thing different from the bike riding is the distance.
One of the cool things about walking is you can see the world around you a little closer. Butterflies can be seen and identified better. It still is a challenge trying to capture them on film though. Still, I think they look kind of cool in a blurry flight photo. It makes them look like some mythical Fairies.
It has been a rather glum day today. Humid and overcast for the most part. Also, I have been battling this stupid cold for over a week now and am ready to be done with it! The “tough” stuff is over, but the lingering cough and sniffles really get on my nerves lately. I’m not sure if the humid weather helps or hinders the recovery.
Cheryl is doing much better with her version of the cold. She is actually thinking she might want to run 15 mils tomorrow at the 8 minute per mile pace. She seems to have skipped the coughing phase of he cold. Lucky her! you can run with sniffles, but not a cough.
It is supposed to get hot over this upcoming week. Hopefully we will be able to get a few long runs in before the really bad stuff hits us. Even yesterday, we finished the 20 miles JUST as the rain began to fall. It pretty much rained on and off all day yesterday.
