Back on Track

It was a good week!

I am more and more feeling like the funk is gone. My mojo is back. The blues have disappeared. Any way you look at it, I am back on track.

I wanted to bring my camera with me on my long run Saturday morning. We started out at the beginning of the South Lake Trail and headed out in the pitch dark at 5:30 AM. We ran into Clermont and got to our turn-around point at the top of a hill on Skyview Drive and saw the sun coming up in the distance over Lake Apopka. It was breathtaking, and worth the 6 plus mile run to see it. and the 6 plus miles back.



I ended my run at 12.7 miles. I thought about extending it out another two miles, but I decided not to push too much, as the hip is finally feeling better and I'm just getting back into the swing of it.

I am looking forward to this coming week. It's going to be a good one. Running and otherwise.

Great to hear you got it back! Good move not overdoing things on that long run. Staying injury-free will make running a lot more fun :-)

Just listened to "The Extra Mile" and listened to your report! What a voice! I had to play it for the office and tell them about you, about our group of running bloggers and about "The Extra Mile."

Congratulations on your first 14 mile long run!
