I tried to break my record from yesterday … 11.6 miles in 39:55, but I missed it by a half minute. Actually, that’s pretty good considering that I’m wearing heavy clothes today and crappy converse sneakers because my regular sneakers did not fully dry out. Yesterday’s ride was wet and messy. Also, my extra pair of sneaks in in my sister’s car, so all I had were my converses. It really made em appreciate having good shoes normally.
The chipmunks were really busy today. They were zooming across the pavement, rather than their usual run stop chew something run stop scratch run stop look scared.
I also thought about slowing down a little bit today, because I realized that I was zooming past things breathing hard the whole way. There seems to be an opposite correlation between pushing hard and seeing interesting wildlife.
Note to self: slow down and enjoy!
Can’t believe there are only 3 days left in the challenge.
