Rest and Recovery

Monday, June 17, 2013

Happy Monday mornin to ya!

I'm still recovering from the Warrior Dash on Saturday! Sitting down, getting up and reaching overhead are challenging moves today. Recovery is going much better though than the last time I ran the Warrior Dash.

It's a beautiful day today. I was thinking about a walking break on the path here at work but didn't relish the thought of pushing myself out of my chair.

Then the times came in from the Warrior Dash. I finished 342 out of 874 women in my age group with a time of 53:35. WHOOOHOOO! That got me out of my chair. That is just under seven minutes better than the last time I did this. I am strong like bull!

I took a quick walk around the path in the sunshine and came up to a chipmunk that did not scurry past me, but sat still in front of me. I see chipmunks out there all the time but they usually sprint past me before I realize I have seen them. This one sat there so I stopped, said "good morning". He stayed put while I took a picture.

So I named him Alvin....

Have a magical Monday!

BTW, when Alvin starts singing to you let me know so I can start to really worry about you emoticon

    Way to go on your Warrior Dash! Nothing like seeing a PR to get you up and moving and motivated for more! (strong like a bull - emoticon hahahaha) Alvin is cute and gutsy! Maybe you'll see him again tomorrow. Say hi!

    Nice job "dashing"! Nearly 900 women in your AGE GROUP? That's one big event.
I've got to go back now and read your race report.

That chipmunk definitely has star qualities. Alvin is the perfect name.
