I’m back into a nice running routine, though I’ve added a small twist. I’ve started running 2 miles, then picking up my dog as I pass by the house. He joins me for the last mile or so, and we usually just walk it. It’s a nice way to break up the run a bit, and it keeps me going past my house. This means that I completed 3.12 miles on Friday (in 41 minutes). I did another 3.36 miles last night (in 46 minutes). I’m also excited to say that I broke a 12 minutes mile on Friday! I ran mile #2 in 11:25! I did not repeat that last night, but did enjoy a wonderfully relaxing run.
Today, though, my legs are sore. This is new for me. After all the running I’ve done in the past 3 months, this is the first time my calves and hamstrings are really sore the next day. Since last night was NOT my fastest or longest run, I’m kind of wondering what’s up with that? Hopefully, it’s just a random thing that will pass. I’m planning to take today as a rest day, so I’ll have time to recover.
We have been struggling with our chickens recently. They have decided that one member of their flock is not approved of. She has had feathers pecked off, and they won’t let her eat! They are being big, bad, chicken bullies! A while ago, we separated her from the flock for a while, but we are not willing to set up a whole different coop just for her. Since it’s getting colder and they need some extra lighting now, we went ahead and put her back in with the others. Hopefully, they won’t kill her.
