I was glad to be back running in “my” park. I hadn’t run there since I did my last long run, 13.2 miles, before I hurt my foot. I missed it. It’s such a great place, really safe, for runners. The local high school cross country team practices there, as well as several local running clubs. Because we ‘re catching a flight to London out of Newark, I considered just running on the treadmill or in my neighborhood. But I decided my morale needed the park.
I haven’t been to England in ages. I’m hoping to spend some time in London and possibly Paris. Most of the trip will be in Dover. I’m planning on running every chance I get. If anyone has suggested routes, let me know.
I’m now training for the Disney Wine & Dine half marathon in November, although I’m not quite doing my training plan this week as I need to take it easy getting back up to my pre-injury conditioning. Fingers crossed for breaking 2 hours and possibly breaking 1:50 for that race.
I’ve also been thinking it’s time to get back to guitar lessons. I’ve goofed around a little, but I need the structure to keep me doing more than noodling around.
I’m excited about this trip. If it’s half as good as Ireland, it will be fun times.
