Indian Summer

A perfect day! Nearly all the leaves are down so you can see for miles! The views of the Ozark Mountains are beautiful!
I've so much energy lately! Probably because I haven't been running. Today I found myself running strong. Only one area of my body is still sore from the marathon. I hope it clears up soon. It's not enough to keep me from running, though.
I also noticed how the hills didn't really dominate me as they usually do...I trucked right up 'em!
Today just a short little ole' run-5.0 miles/ 50:01/ 10:00's. Every mile got faster! The marathon has engrained some strength!
I really plan on adding miles this week. Probably will run every day except Sunday, but I will just play it by ear. Yesterday was a bummer! I was totally exhausted! Sunday kicked my tail!
Hope all is well with you! Peace!!

I know what you mean about that strength...it seems to just be there right after a marathon and that's why it's so hard to really rest and NOT plan for the next one right away! Great, positive post. You're an inspiration!

Hi Mark

Such an upbeat post! I feel like I am there with you as you enjoy the beauty that nature has to offer.

BTW, congrats on that great marathon time.

Beautiful

     Oh my! The weather is spectacular! I managed another 30 minute run. So 5 short runs this week. Just kind of maintaining! Hope you are ...
