Somehow Saturday managed to be the world's busiest day. Two state parks, a little hike, an antique mall, a picnic, a visit to a deer park, and I still finagled in a P90X Plyometrics workout in just before 9pm. You would not believe how proud I was of that. 99% of my body wanted to lay on the couch and maybe help myself to some of my delicious coconut ice cream, but that 1% was nagging me and so I just got it done. Since the state parks were repeats for me, I didn't take many pictures. But the Deer Park was awesome! Of course, I just fell in love with the guard dog. I basically paid the $8 admission fee to cuddle up with the world's biggest dog:
That poor little deer just wanted some attention and I was enamored with the puppy. I know that after about 100 pounds dogs can't be called "puppies", but whatever. I did feed the deer as well so they wouldn't feel left out:
As did the hubs....
To top it all off, I saw a deer hopping across the path on this morning's run. Normally I get so excited when I see deer, but after the overload yesterday I was all deer-ed out. Speaking of the "long run"---well, it wasn't so long. I only got out there at 8:15, so it was too hot to go very far. I ran out of water after 7 miles and just headed on home. I haven't officially started a marathon training plan yet, so I won't worry about one week without a long run.
How long do your marathon training plans last?
I'm looking through them, so I'm curious how many weeks the average is. I'm 18 weeks from my first marathon, so I know I'm behind--need to get started soon!
Are you a dog person or a cat person?
Even though I'm in love with the dog in the picture, I'm definitely a cat girl. They're just so adorable and cuddly! Yes, I'm going to be one of those crazy old cat ladies with like 17 cats.
