I Have Often Run Down This Track Before

with apologies to ... do you know to whom?


After a couple of days off due to problems with vertigo, I went out and ran 2 1/8 miles this morning. I like to slowly increase my distances before worrying about my times (lol) and hopefully I'll continue to improve. That's eight-and-one-half laps around the track, by the way.

I prefer to run on a track because I can measure my distances and times and monitor my pulse rate too, which thankfully seems to be dropping. I've been working up a little sweat also.

Hopefully, when I'm feeling a little more spry, I may jog along the levee and take some of those pictures I want to take for you. The levee and river is actually closer to my home than the track, but I'll have to plot out a course and distance I think I can handle first.

Wish you could join me!

Are there lilac trees in the heart of town?
Can you hear a lark in any other part of town?
Does enchantment pour out of ev'ry door?

That track looks nice! I am trying to find a good track to train on myself.
Right now I just use the sidewalk.
Keep up the good pace!

Going to jump into the shower ... finally cooled down ... how'd the 5K go? We have a 10K in April (usually), the CCC, but health reasons have always prevented me from training for it.

It went great for me, Alex on the other hand cried a river about it! LOL
I ended up having to carry my girl on my back. Luckily for me she is tiny.
I do 3-4 miles everyday so I was fine.
I am looking for a 10k myself to join soon. I may do one in Seal Beach on April 1 but I am thinking about it this morning.
I wish I could do the 26.2 but I need a lot more training before I sign up for that. =)

I wish I could run right now. :D

That would sure be fun for me ... IF I knew you could stay on your feet! I can see the headline now:

Local Man Has Heart Attack
After Running Pal Stumbles

But do let me know. :)

Oh, I love that song! You know I'm going to have to get that movie now.

I would love to join you, but will be sitting on a chair reading while you do all the work. ;) The only time I run is after a child. Even then, I try calling them first.

I can hear it ... Oh, No! Don't you MAKE me come after you!"

LOL!! Exactly! You even got the accent right. It's funny, since we've lived here, my drawling gets their attention quicker.
