When it all comes together ...

It was a beautiful day today so it actually made it kind of easy to head out for my run. Well that and Bax needed to go for a run. He was starting to give me "the look" .. you know, the one only your dog can give you ..

Getting the hurry up ...
 I left as soon as I got home because I knew that if I left it any later I would be starving and would not be able to talk myself into going!  Even though it's the middle of winter it was just gorgeous in the sun and that awful wind seems to have gone away for a while.

The first kilometre felt great, so comfortable that I had to tell myself to slow down because I knew how fatigued my legs already were and I knew what was ahead of me on the trail. 
Heading up the first hill, 500m, I found out where my legs were starting to hurt after yesterday's PT!  Surprisingly, I still felt strong! 

Another hill and I get to head downhill for a while .. then uphill again!  This is a hilly trail run as I have said before, but I still love it.  Just me, Baxter and the peace of the bush.  Everything just seemed to click today, you know those days when it just feels right!

Another slow climb before "Spider" .. I walked up Spider .. I knew that my legs just weren't going to carry me up that one!  Home stretch and it's pretty much downhill.   

Today was the run that just pumps you up and reminds you of why you run and what it really feels like when it all comes together!  See my funny, happy, sweaty face today ...

Stay focused,  Stay strong
