I got lost and found it...

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Before the breakout of my cold I had found a track in the woods that looked promising for running. Today at last I went there to testrun it. To get there I have to walk down-and-up-hill a lot so I got there all warmed up and sweaty.
Had to catch my breath and started walking on the new track for a bit. After a minute I started running, for some seconds; the track made a turn and became another hill to climb. emoticon
Well, shame on the one giving up, as we say in Sweden. I climbed on and after a while it was ok for running again. Then suddenly the track ended... emoticon

OK!? I stood there looking at an old ruin. I did not feel like going back the same way so I looked for, and found, a small path heading up the mountain. If I could not run I could as well check this out. It was very steep and at times I almost went on hands and knees. And a lot of thorny bushes!
But having gone this far it seemed stupid to turn around, so I climbed on.

This small path came out on a bigger track again that was perfect for running. I run in the woods, birds singing, sun shining, beautiful olive trees and the rocky mountain as a fond. On the way back I had a fantastic view over the mediterranean sea. PURE HAPPINESS! emoticon

And I was almost turning around when I ended up at the ruin! I would have missed out on all this.
We have been living here for over a year in this village and I discovered this lovely part of it today. So glad I kept going!
Now I have found a track for running - which has been no easy task here.
Lot of happiness and love from Callosa dén Sarriŕ! emoticon emoticon

    Phew – I thought you had been lost in the woods and running around for hours emoticon but the lesson from your experience must be that we need to get a little lost to find our new paths... emoticon

    Thanks for writing!

    Sounds fun and made me daydream of running outside in the good weather (but we don't have beautiful scenery like that!). Lots of snow and cold wind here today.
    The ruins and that've got my vote for the camera too.....take pix if you get a chance.

    Girl, I feel like you need to take your camera with you and take pictures of the beautiful places you just experienced! That's so great that you were able to find such a calming, yet beautiful, environment to do your run and get in some much needed cardio! I bet you're going to be feeling it tomorrow, but dang, so worth it!!!

    Keep it up!!!
