3 miles easy pace, sunny & 65 degree
Returned home late last night from my son’s graduation and helping him moved out of his apartment. Woo-hoo, a major accomplishment.
But not realizing how exhausting the past a couple days had been physically and emotionally, I was barely better than a zombie all through the day today. So much so, I even caught myself dozing off a couple of times including during the savasana of my yoga practice.
One thing is certain – I am not my younger self. Thus it will take longer for me to recover from the trip (and similarly during my marathon training). Something I must accept. Good to be flexible and plan for rest. On the flip side, since my marathon training started, I have been sleeping more soundly.
The three miler easy pace this morning was a welcomed relief. Hard to imaging if it were more than that. Coincidentally, the kids from a local elementary school were doing their physical ed run at the same time which helped encouraging me along the way.
