Four Mile Easy Run

I just finished a four mile run (10:00/mi. average pace). At first, my legs felt heavy, but it didn't take long before they felt better.

I noticed a lot of pink wildflowers in my neighborhood. One neighbor did the same thing I did in my yard: mowed around the wildflowers. Another neighbor planted some 5 foot trees that I counted as I ran down the street. There were fifty!

I did have a pain in the back of my left leg in the second mile. I stopped and rubbed it, but that didn't help. It went away after a couple of minutes, though. : )

So glad to have run four miles with the breeze on my face and the sun shining in the clear blue sky.

    Hi, Tina, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. Yeah, I hope my knee gets better soon. I tried to run yesterday to test if it's okay. It was fine after a while, so I am thinking of running a little longer this afternoon.

    Hope you have a wonderful day! God bless you.

  2. Glad to see you're able to run after your fall. Thanks for dropping by! : )

  3. Sounds great! Everything is a bit better when sunshine is involved. :)

  4. Sounds like a lovely run, and it's great that you take the time to look around you while you run!

    Sometimes I count trees too during my runs, usually to shut my mind up when it's whining: 'I wanna stop running!'

  5. I usually miss a lot as in, "How many times did I run by that dead snake in the middle of the road before I saw it?!" : )

  6. That sounds like a wonderful run. I love running at a relaxed pace and taking in the scenery. Four miles is just about the perfect distance.

    I have those random pains when I run and always panic briefly, but then run through them and they go away.

  7. I planted some wildflowers in our front beds last year. They looked kinda like weeds coming up this year at first, but now they are okay with some blossoms on them.
