Waking up to sunshine was the perfect way to start this wonderful Saturday. My mom and I had planned to go for a long run today, but my body had a different idea. It didn’t take long before we both realized I wouldn’t be able to follow the plan. My breathing was horrible and it felt like I had left most my energy at home somewhere. We had to listen to my body at this point and reschedule our long run. Luckily my mom suggested that we could do a run-walk-hike instead, and that’s exactly what we did.
We hiked up the Paradise Hills to this really beautiful little farm place. We walked around for a while and took some photos, before we continued our journey.
I hadn’t been to this place in forever. Look at how beautiful it is, wow!
We kept switching between running and walking from how I was feeling. And it really turned out to be a lovely run-walk-hike. Some days the body just needs something different than what the brain has planned, and I’m really glad we could still get a good workout.
From farm land to lake view. With each step our run-walk-hike just got better and better.
The weather couldn’t have been any better either (and I really hope this is how it’s going to be for a while). Everything was perfect, and because my mom was so okay with the changes we had to make to our planned long run I didn’t feel too guilty for ruining it. We had a great workout, a really nice time together and got plenty of fresh air. That’s all that mattered. 11,76 km, great Saturday!
What did you do this weekend?
Do you ever have days where the body and brain won’t work together?

4 Thoughts on “Run-walk-hike

  1. Gorgeous pictures! What a beautiful place to live!

    My long run this weekend didn’t go as planned either. My hamstring cramped up about five miles in and I had to call it a day. I’m hoping a little bit of extra rest now will pay off in the long run!

  2. Great pictures, I could run all day with views like that.

    There are plenty of times where runs are detailed because of daily like. You did the right thing by being flexible and changing the workout. I usually try to do the same.
