Today was a rest day, well at least as close to one as I do 😉 .
Bennie and I ran an easy 2.3 miles this morning and when we got back to the Lower Gate we encountered this thing
Yeah, it was almost as long as Bennie, who wanted to go play with it. Not poisonous, but big enough to be a pain and no I wasn’t going to move the damn thing. Hopefully, when we run tomorrow it won’t be there as a flattened carcass.
Then I was going to do 4-6 miles on the Rail Trail in the afternoon, when I finished an errand in Augusta. However, by the time I got done, it was 87+ and humid, so I just relaxed and instead of killing myself out in the heat and humidity – I stopped for a Root Beer Float. The first one I have had in years – and yes, it tasted great.
It was still too damn hot to do anything outside after I got home, so Bennie and I spent some quality time in my chair, dreaming of cooler weather or him chasing that snake down, his little paws were just cruising along a couple of times ;-).
I had thought about running after supper, but I figured that I needed the rest more than another run, so I walked Bennie and came home and had a long Epsom Salt bath.
My legs are feeling pretty damn good now.
Rest is not the 4-letter word that I make it out to be sometimes. 😉
So today, was at least for me at least – a rest day.
