STILL Not Training

I wrote that I wasn’t training (for now), and I’m sticking to it! Like I mentioned, I’m resting while running.  This morning was my “short” run, an out-and-back to Top of the World in Laguna Beach.  This is a nice hilly run, not too steep at all, but a good work-out.  Once I reached the ridge, it was rolling hills, REAL rolling hills, not those hills that some people (and I won’t mention names) call “rolling hills.”  (You know, those hills that you have to grasp at branches, scrape your knees just to climb Smile). 

It’s full-on autumn here, which is a delight.  But this also means that I almost always overdress.  Like I did today.  The weather was cool, even cloudy and darkish at first.  But, after climbing the first hill (Cholla Trail – not a rolling hill), I was ready to strip off the long sleeves.

But I managed.  And I managed happily. 

Here’s to running while resting!!
