So it’s still cold.
So cold in fact that I didn’t leave the house on Wednesday. I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather lately and I wasn’t about to brave a 40 degree day with winds gusting out of the north at 40mph.
Yesterday I managed to drag myself out of the house to ride. Staying warm while horseback wasn’t a problem. I couldn’t bring myself to stay outside too long and I needed to run since I skipped the last two days. Partly I skipped because I didn’t feel good. And partly I skipped because it was so friggin’ cold!
I managed to get dressed and do a short 5 minute warm up and then off, down the cow trail I went, Higgins running his typical zig-zag in front of me. I manged to run a full 12 minutes this time before my lungs and heart and legs gave out. I began again after a 30 second walk-recover and then I spotted it, another coyote about 50 feet away. This one, however wasted no time running away from me, into hiding somewhere. And I saw a gigantic white tail buck! And lots of ducks on the river; swimming peacefully enjoying the gloomy day. Ducks are good at that.
I should run again today. But it’s cold outside again.
