This Monday, I'm totally in Love with my Saturday "long" run. It was the absolute triple threat of things I love:
- More miles!
- Urban chickens!
- Fall weather!
1. More Miles
As I said, I now have the all-clear to add on miles to my daily runs, and I couldn't be happier about it! I decided to take it slow and added one mile to my now-standard Saturday 4-miler, making it 5.1. It felt easy, let me expand the terrain I'm covering, and left me feeling confident about building up mileage a bit.
2. Urban chickens
I kid you not, there was a loose chicken in the park. You may remember my love of the urban chicken. I can't make this stuff up.
3. Fall weather
The park hasn't started changing colors yet, so for my newly added 5th mile I headed into a neighborhood where I knew I've seen some changing leaves. Bring it on! I love all things about October and running. Race season! Gorgeous mornings! Crazy costumes at 5ks! I love it all.
Happy Monday y'all!!
