HMT Day 14 and Other Fun Things

So, I totally get why my training plan called for a long run the day after a hill workout, but that still didn’t make things very fun…

My legs were sore, tired, and they did not want to move today. It was also hot, humid, and gross. But since it was cloudy and there was a nice cool wind it wasn’t too miserable. Plus my awesome husband drove me to the nature trail, so I was under trees and in the shade for the majority of my run. 

Doing my best to stay hydrated and not die.

The plan was to go 5 miles, but I didn’t quite make it. When I was a little over a mile from the car I saw a guy who was obviously playing Pokemon go. My first thought upon seeing this guy was “oh hey, he’s wearing a shirt just like Luke has…wait a second! That is Luke!!”

Turns out, he spent 40 minutes walking on the trail hoping he would run into me on my way back. So we ended up running together for a little bit. And stopping to catch a few Pokemon of course. 😉 

I didn’t exactly make my goal, but I was close damn enough, plus we ended up having a lot of fun and that’s what really matters. 

After running, we drove home so I could change and Luke could grab a phone charger, then we went to a park to do some more Pokemon hunting. We hung out there for a while and then drove to a big home furnishing store were Luke got me an awesome new camera! It’s basically a Polaroid camera and I think it’s the neatest thing ever!! 

After that we went to Russell Stovers because everyone needs a little bit of chocolate in their lives, then to Walmart to get laundry pins and yarn so I can hang my nifty instant photos on the wall. 😄

How neat is that?!

So by the time we had finished all of those adventures it was around 2:30 and I still hadn’t showered. That’s right, I spent about 5 and a half hours and went into several different public places a smelly, sweaty mess. Oh well. By the time I finally did get showered I felt amazing after being gross for that long. 

It also felt super good to sit for a while which is exactly what I did for a while after I was clean. I downed a bunch of water too, because after my run I wasn’t doing so well with the whole “staying hydrated” thing. 

After some much needed sitting, I did some much needed stretching/foam rolling, and some much needed cleaning. After all of that canning we did yesterday the kitchen was a wreck!

And of course we had to go on our evening Pokemon stroll. That put me over 20,000 steps which is always an exciting feat! 😁

Anyways, we’ve had a very exciting day and I hope you guys did too!
