It's been rainy the last two days. I don't love running in the rain, but I don't hate it either. I deal. My recovery from the half marathon (recap tomorrow) has been slow. I've run an easy 3 and now 4, but don't plan on pushing daily mileage higher than that until next week.
Our neighborhood is residential with a mix of some smaller city-ish streets toward downtown. The city is trying to finish final repairs before the weather gets chilly, so a lot of the scenery looks like this right now.
Sometimes, though, I like to pretend that I live where there are tons of parks and trails. I head to this cemetery about a mile from our house. The loop is around a mile with a mix of pavement, dirt, and cinders. I sometimes do the loop a few times if I need a break from traffic and ugly buildings.
I'm not one to take photos during races or workouts, but today, I just had to. The leaves are falling like crazy, and I know they'll be gone before I have time to fully appreciate them. I did my first loop and then jogged home to get my phone.
I guess this is my rave run.
For dinner, we had stuffed peppers and brown ale. These four are just my portion -- and we still have leftover filling! I always make way too much. Hopefully Ada will enjoy it for lunch tomorrow.
Also, I need to start using my DSLR again. The iPhone is appealing, but these photos are awful. Sorry!
In accordance with my new less-is-better internet goal, I'm going to sign off and spend some quality time with Stephen. And maybe eat some more leftover Spelt Cornbread!
