Almost worth blogging about was the guy on the treadmill next to me who nearly biffed it while trying to look at his phone while walking. I managed to keep my snickers to myself. Maybe he just saw this on facebook:
On my flight home, I had a window seat and the most beautiful show.
And today on my run, I was graced with another beautiful view.
In the last six weeks I have come down with two colds, two UTIs and been on two business trips. This has wrecked HAVOC on my running schedule to say the least. I haven't had an immune system breakdown like that in several years. It's been frustrating but admittedly I couldn't ask for better timing. I'm not training for any races so the cut in mileage isn't that big of a deal.
My diet and exercise have suffered since my marathon. Ok... my diet has been suffering since summer started. I don't know what has gotten in to me (other than food). I have to get back to my healthy lifestyle because I'm sure it is the key to getting and staying healthy.
Starting tomorrow I'm making a change. Why put off until tomorrow what I can do today, you may ask? Well, it is almost bedtime.
I'm going to make better food choices and no more skipping out on my run. I may not be in official training mode, but it's going to take a lot of hard work to shave 20 minutes from my half marathon best time.
Next week I am traveling for work again and I expect the treadmill will be my workout of choice, but if it's a nice neighborhood and I get some daylight I'm going to get out and see the sights on foot! It's been a gorgeous autumn here and by the looks of the weather reports I bet it is in Colorado next week too!
I never look forward to autumn. It's not that I don't like the season. I just don't like that it means Summer is over and Winter is almost here. But a few of my favorite things come with Fall:
* Sunsets with fall foliage in the foreground
* The smell of leaves and crisp morning air
* Fall colors of course
* Cool weather for running
* My fuzzy robe
* Some of my favorite Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab scents
* Comfort food (Soup season and all things pumpkin!)
* Red wine
* Snuggling with extra blankets
What are your favorite things about Autumn?
