After running 6 miles outside yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised this morning that my legs felt so light and strong. It felt like I was floating. I breathed like I was meditating not running. I ran 5.20 miles and felt great. It was kind of funny because last night I worked and stayed up late. I didn’t sleep that much and this morning I was quite cranky before I went to the gym. But somehow I had this good run 🙂
Yesterday when I wrote my blog post, I forgot to say that it was the first outdoor running with my Nike free 2+ shoes on. Those shoes helped my feet to feel the road more. I’m willing to buy another pair.
After the gym, I drove around to the stores. It was snowing but wasn’t as heavy as later in the day. My shoes got wet. I should’ve brought a pair of old shoes. When I came back, it was already 12:30. My morning was all gone!! In the afternoon, I took Jeter and Cappy for their walk. They were like sled dogs. Especially Cappy, she was so excited about the snow and she forgot to do her business! I managed to walk them together a little bit and went back home. Then I took only Cappy out again with a 30ft leash and Chuckit flying squirrel toy. Cappy was so so so happy playing in the snow. She ran, jumped, and dived in the snow. She was such a cute snow princess.
She wanted to play forever but I stopped after about 20 minutes. I took her home and dried her. And then I took Jeter out. Cappy wanted to follow him but I told her to stay in the house. Jeter ran happily. He was so fast. He dived into the snow several times and his face was all covered with snow. I couldn’t take a picture of his happy face covered with lots of snow because he moved so fast. I just took this one at the end of playing.
This is the first serious snow of this winter in Chicago. When we took our corgis for the night walk, they were cruising in the snow like submarines 🙂 I played some more fetch with them and now they are happily resting around our feet. From the good run in the morning to fun fetch in the snow with my lovable corgis at night, it was quite a good day.
