With the impetus of the ultra behind me, I find myself playing around on the workouts again. If I see something that interests me, I stop and explore. Today I spent quite a bit of time recovering deposit cans from the "swimming hole" upstream of Ernie's Bridge. So much so that I was nearly completely immersed! Good thing I thought ahead enough to take my socks, shoes, camera, and Ipod off before trying to retrieve the cans from the water.
|The pool in January. It's much shallower today.|
But I also settled down and ran some significant stretches. The heat and dry conditions are becoming troublesome. I hope we get some good rains soon.
5.5 miles this AM and a 4 mile hike tonight.
