my weekend in photos

Running this weekend was small in mileage. TINY, in fact. But, in terms of happy feelings, it was big because it felt like I had been cooped up all week long. Still not feeling 100%, but was better enough to get out and run a few miles.

Ran  several laps around this track at Piedmont Park. Midtown Atlanta Skyline is off in the distance.

Ran 3.25 miles. felt ok physically but I could feel my body struggle a little. The sunshine and all the people out being active were positive forces. Some guys were playing flag football and i wanted to play too. After the run, i took about a 2 minute break and then did some repeats of this:

Yea – those are some good, deep, steps. 1 time up/down = 1 and I did 4 sets of 3. So, up/down 3 times, rest, repeat x 4. felt great. really like to see how i fare whenever I do stairs. These are some of the deepest I know of in my area. After that, i was done. 

Sunday, I started the run in my old neighborhood of Virginia-Highlands and just did an easy 4.25. again, didn’t feel too great physically, but glad I was able to get in even a few miles. It was such a gorgeous day, warmer than yesterday and lots of people out and about. 

Later in the (late) afternoon, i went and sat outside at a coffeehouse. The sun was shining and the birds were chirping. A slight breeze would intermittently swing by. I love sitting outside at this place in weather like today.
