So these past few days, as you probably gathered/noticed if you’ve seen my last few entries, I’ve been really busy… and eating. A lot. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of those girls that goes on diets all the time, and counts calories every day (I’m not sure I could stay on a diet, really. I just love food too much!). I’m more of a, let’s revamp the type of foods that we’re eating, and watch the portion size – when it’s needed. But heck, when you’re hungry, eat. And eat real food! Anyway… I digress.
Because of all this, and because frankly I haven’t been really exercising at all these last few weeks and I miss it, I went for a run today! There is a lake I know of, that is roughly 1.2 miles around.
Knowing this is a distance that I’ve done many times in the past, I’ve wanted to try and run around this specific lake, for a long time. Today, I did it! I was/am pretty pumped!
After all the training before, I’d sort of given running a rest, and the last time I tried, I barely went any distance at all. It makes me so happy that I can still push out a mile (it took me forever to get to that point).
The weather was beautiful, and so was the scenery… ya gotta love MN lakes!
