Bike Commute 3 miles
Today was my first day working at my new time of 1:00 pm. I think this will be nice once I get used to it but for most of this year I have been doing all of my training in the afternoon or evening. I will now have to do most of it in the morning. It takes me awhile to get up and get going in the morning and I most definitely felt that today. Luckily there was so much going on in my run that I didn't have much time to think about how weak and tired I was feeling. It was raining and windy and I was running through swaps and creeks and crossing countless downed logs and other obstacles. There are only a few trails around Juneau that I haven't run on in the year that I've lived here and today I checked out one of these trail, leaving just two that I know of that I haven't been on. Not bad considering that there are more than 40 trails in the area.
Like each of the past two days I thought I would go to the gym tonight and like each of the past two days I'm being lazy and blowing it off. Oh well. it's supposed to be fun and right now I'm having a great time when I'm out running but going to the gym for some weights just doesn't sound fun to me.
Here's some pictures from today's run:
This log was supposed to be a bridge, complete with ropes to hold it in place and chicken wire fencing stapled to it to provide traction. Now I consider myself to have pretty decent balance but there was no way I was about to try walking across this thing. Crossing the creek was much trickier than it looks but much better than getting to the middle of this log and losing my balance, ripping my leg across the chicken wire, and falling face first into the raging water below. no thanks.
