Happy Valentines Day – RunLog 2-14-18

Happy Valentine’s Day.

Mary and I celebrated by going to lunch at Joseph’s and then got deserts from Governors to have with coffee this evening. We gave one another some candy and enjoyed the day together. Very low-key, but it simply is who we are – comfortable being with each other.

Yeah, it was a nice Valentine’s Day.

No photos today, but great memories of a another day spent together.

We both got in our runs earlier outside since the weather was milder than it has been. Low 30’s and a 5-10 mph breeze out of the SSW made things pretty reasonable. Especially, when you add in that the roads were almost completely clear – although the shoulders got a bit interesting if you had to run on them to avoid traffic.

After yesterday’s 9.0 miles on the treadmill the legs felt a bit tired, so I just ran comfortably for the entire run. I didn’t push the pace until the last little bit. This run was more about getting the legs moving and getting a few more miles on the legs.

I did work on how I hold my arms and not swinging my right arm past my centerline. Something that I do more than I should, but whenever I look at photos it is something that I always seem to have done. I wonder if it might have something to do with that leg-length discrepancy I have where my left leg is longer than the right one? However, it is something that I do without thinking about it.

Yeah, the old guy is looking a bit older, but the arm swing is about the same, despite the work that I have put into attempting to changing my form or should I say not much is different.

Overall, a very good day, spent with the woman I love – a great thing. 🙂

The best thing in my opinion is that most days I do get to spend them with Mary and it is a special time in my life that I am enjoying more than anyone else will ever know. Even though I bug her a bit too much now that I am home most of the time. 😉

Some things do get better as you get older, because you realize what you do have and do not take it for granted.
