The Run for the Sun actually works! The weather got better over the last 6 days and today the sun was really out. When I drove to work, it was a cozy 5°C, but when I ran in the afternoon, it was around 25°C and full sunlight.
I ran a little extra through the woods today and tried running bare feet on the trail. It was… challenging. I enjoyed the soft ground very much but there was a lot of gravel and pebbles around and it hurt quite a bit. I never knew that roads can feel that soft afterwards.
So with that extra bit, I ran a total of 3,35 km today, about 1km bare feet. It felt quite easy and I really enjoyed the heat.
I’m so glad, that finally a two weeks of holidays come around. I really messed things up at work today. My head needs those holidays badly. We celebrated at our favorite Chinese restaurant, I slept for nearly two hours in the afternoon and then I was ready to run.
I met a cute little doggy on my way. Unlike many runners, I really like dogs and never encounter any problems. The dog thought that I smelled interesting, maybe because of our three cats and I cuddled him a bit. People were friendly out there today. I think everybody feels good when summer finally arrives around here.
Tomorrow’s going to be my long run for this week. I’ve got to plan a route mostly in the woods, or else I will melt. Maybe I can have a look how „our“ beavers are doing.
So, see you tomorrow!
