I had a good day today. Had a slow start this morning, I had trouble convincing myself (and the dog) to get out of bed. Cooper stayed in bed while I had breakfast and went about my morning routine, but he got up eventually. Maybe he knew what I had planned for him today. I ended up walking him 11.9 miles today. Good pooch! I also went for a 2 mile run. Not that I ran the whole 2 miles, but my time still averaged out to 11.5 min/mile, so I am okay with that. I think running outside really is harder... it is not just a problem in my mind. It doesn't help that it is still in the 40s. It is supposed to get up into the low 50s tomorrow, with sunshine. So, my plan as of this minute is to go for a longer run tomorrow. Normally Saturday is a rest day for me, but I want to take advantage of the good weather. Also, I don't feel especially tired out this week. Some weeks by the time I get to Saturday all I can handle is walking the dog, but I am feeling pretty chipper this week.
I got some cleaning done today, and my friend came and did a grocery run for me, so it was a pretty full day. Now I am relaxing with a glass of wine and a sleeping dog. I plan on finishing the book I started reading last night. Then I will toddle off to bed.
