So I get up this morning after a couple of snooze buttons. I swing my legs out of bed, feel that the soreness is still there but has dissipated quite a bit and the first thing I think? Gonna be a great run in the park this morning! With this warm weather hitting us, and the fact that I don't work on Fridays, I have kinda decided that weather permitting, it is time to begin jogging in the park on Fridays and that thought just absolutely makes me overjoyed! A year ago, I had trouble walking around my block people! and it is a half mile! Now I am determined that today is the first day I jog three miles straight while not on the treadmill. I like running on land, I can adjust my pace automatically and take hills both up and down into account and honestly, my mind wanders more when I jog on land because I don't have to focus on staying in the middle of the treadle either. Not that the treadmill has not been a wonderful tool this winter and it has kept me moving forward in my weight loss when it would have been easy to stall out until the spring got here. I just love being outdoors and get a great deal more joy out of the thought of all the different locales I can go jogging. We are going to go either camping or cabin staying at a couple of state parks this summer. One is going to be Devil's Den, our favorite and most local park. I can just envision me climbing out of the tent or walking out of the cabin and taking a morning jog around nature's beauty and it makes me feel all mushy inside. really? where did Fat Shane go? oh who cares, I like this new Shane better anyway!
