Those of you that read my last blog know it was a challenging week with a sinus infection. Blogging about it and reading other's blogs helped me get a grip.
I'm feeling much better today. While watching yesterday's disappointing Cubs game, I did a couple Spark videos and isometric exercises.
Today I pulled myself off the couch after watching a disappointing Bears game and went for just a short, slow run to see how I felt. It was good for the soul!
I returned a DVD to my library and set out on a path nearby that DH and I recently stumbled upon while bicycle riding recently.
At first I felt like Ben Grim from Fantastic Four, thundering along the path. The song Autumn Leaves by Paula Cole came on my playlist and I got my breathing under control and felt a little lighter as I paid attention to the scenery....
A little further along, Into The Mystic by Van Morrison came on and I almost felt the beauty around me, wondering why I had never wandered around here before....
Do You Realize by The Flaming Lips played and I enjoyed the moment I was in... "You realize that life goes fast, it's hard to make the good things last.."
Brighter Than the Sun played and I believe I saw a crane....
I felt good after an easy breezy 2.25 mile run. I'm toying with the idea of a half marathon. If you knew me, you'd be gasping loudly right now. I've never had a desire for a half or full marathon but I think it would be pretty cool to run the Detroit to Canada half marathon.
So we'll see. I have a year to work on it. First things first, work on a better nutrition week.
Nighty Night dear Sparkers!
