Photo’s From My Run

I try to run on my lunch break 1-2 times a week when I’m not traveling to meetings. It’s not always idea but it then free’s up my evening to do chores blog 😉 Today’s run didn’t really have a distance attached to it but more speed work.

I headed out for my run and waited for my Garmin to catch the satellite …. kinda awkward to do on the corner of a busy intersection.


Then, I decided to run a long the trail and hit up the local track…it’s been a long time since I did “fartlek training” (okay about 15 years) . I thought I would do some around the gravel track. There was one other person at the track and he was walking when I arrived and the hopped on his bike. We exchange “nice weather” and then he added “nice shoes”!

They do kinda rock. especially with the florescent neon yellow socks my husband bought me at Christmas. It works!

However,  before I got to the track, I saw these steps and thought “that would be fun to run up/down”.


I took it slow and stead and did them twice, only because I had to get back to work, ya know.

My whole run was easy other than the speed work and steps. I ran an easy pace but a few times had my head down by my feet breathing every ounce of air I could, walked a little, stopped at a cross-walk but managed to get in 5k in about 32 minutes.

It was a nice change and in the end, I really didn’t mind the stairs. After I picked up the girls, we got the mail and this arrived:


From the Virtual 5k Keep Calm & Run On 5k Run I did back in April. Fun!

Then, I ended my night hanging with these cuties….a good night selfie to Daddy while he works 🙂

All in a day’s work 😉  Well…kinda of.

Do you change up your runs randomly or follow a strict plan?

Ever see stairs and think “that might be fun”?

Do people complement your runners?
