I managed to work in a nice little run around the pasture today. I try not to get too close to the cows because they are very protective of their calves.
2 laps is about 4.6 miles and 4 creek crossings with every lap. The elevation really isn't too bad, someday when I get back in shape I should be able to run it all. It's just nice that I can get in a "trail" run leaving right from my home and following the cow paths around the perimeter of the pasture.
I am still struggling to establish some healthy habits but the exercise is getting better. I am back with my workout group every MWF and if I can't make it in the morning, I have been making it up in the evening.
I have somehow let my health and my life get slightly out of control. I let it drive me instead of me driving it. Maybe that doesn't mean anything to you, but essentially I have been in a long slump.
I am working my way out of it. Nothing serious, I have the power to take back control, and I am doing so every day.
