That...and the thought of running in this didn't really set my heart alight but it was more about shaking off the stiffness.
So, when the opportunity to go came up at 11:30 - I leapt immediately, changed and headed out the door. The sun was still peeking through the clouds - maybe I could beat the downpour.
This butterfly was on the overpass above the train tracks...so pretty. I don't think I've ever seen one so big with markings like this before. He was probably 4 inches across. He was struggling though, so I don't know if he was stepped on or just hanging out. He was gone on the return trip so I'd like to think he flew himself away.
|edited to add: apparently it is a Glovers Silk Moth! |
Very rare! So cool!
I did a quick 4k - continuous around the Southwood loop. The first k felt a little creaky on the uphill, but once I had warmed up - I was feeling pretty good.
I ran this all by feel since one of my next goals is to run a 10k continuously and that is how I plan to do it so I won't be all hung up on pace. Here's what Nike had to say about this run...
It started to pour approximately three minutes after I returned to my desk. Must be my lucky day.
