I’m feeling much better today, the sniffles have all but disappeared and so has the coughing. I knew the weather was supposed to be partly cloudy with a high around 55, but as the clouds disappeared and the sun climbed higher in the beautiful blue sky, I got really antsy to get outside.
My plan was to wait until the temperature hit 50 and for the wind to die down a little. But, as soon as the weather service on my computer displayed the temp at 45 and I felt the warmth of the sun come through my window, I couldn’t get my running shoes and jacket on fast enough. I just couldn’t stand being cooped up in the house one more minute and headed up the street to the trails at the lake for a nice brisk walk and maybe a few short running jaunts.
It was fantastic being outside and fee in the sun on my face! The wind was a bit brisk and I could feel it through my fleece jacket, especially walking across the damn, but I soon worked up a bit of a sweat and had to unzip my jacket some.
There were men and their sons sitting along the bank of the lake with their fishing poles and gear, some were out on the water in their small fishing boats. There were moms and dads with their young children on bikes with training wheels wearing their pink and purple helmets. There were couples riding bikes together, and couples doing some easy runs together. But my favorite was the gorgeous hunk, a guy in his late twenties to early thirties, that was doing a slow jog, no shirt on, with a physic to make any woman drool! (You could tell this guy works out religiously with the weights). He flashed me a smile and said hello. Of course, I gave him a polite hello back. Now I really understand the term ‘eye candy’.
Anyway, I had a wonderful hour long walk with three very short jogs thrown in just for good measure, on a gorgeous, sunny afternoon.
Yep, spring has sprung and I’m feeling so much better!
