We have been to the park a lot lately! I have new trail shoes to break in, so far just been walking in them to get a feel for them, and Sky, and the dogs, have energy to burn. So, every time there is a break in the rain, or the sun comes out we drop everything and head to the park. Thankfully it’s only two or three minutes tops from out house and has miles, and miles of trails and paved paths to enjoy.
If not for being so close to the park and being able to walk when I want I would lose my mind over the lack of running!
Bishop and I were pretty far behind the faster family members so I missed the family photo op that this view provided. I love how the branches arch over the path. In the summer these trails are the perfect cover/shade from the sun on really hot days…perfect for trail running!
Loving my new Brooks Cascadia’s! Lot’s of walking right now, but as soon as Silas is a little better on the leach I’m hitting the trails with him every chance I get. He’s a great running partner, still pulls a bit too much and swerves into me.
I still have mostly road races in the next few months, but after May I plan on taking it back to the trails for more of my runs. It’s how I started, it makes my heart happy, and I think it will be kinder to my back/body. I’ll still road run, but just need more balance in my running life.
Speaking of running, this is just about how every run goes. 3 miles, and it’s a fast run if I get close to 10. I’m going to keep plugging away at it short and slowly.
