Yes! I woke up to the sound of chirping and tweeting, instead of snowplows and salt trucks. Yes my dear friends, Spring is in the air and it’s not just the birds who are happy. People are out and about everywhere, from children on bikes, runners, walkers, shoppers and gardeners. What a magical time of year. The energy is palpable because you can feel how happy folks are to not have to be cooped up inside. It is funny how much the temperature affects my mood and mental psyche. My taste for thirst quenching and refreshing fruit also increases. Oh what a little sunshine can do to give me a pep in my step and put a smile on my face. My winter blahs are a thing of the past.
Today was supposed to be a rest/restorative yoga day, but California skies, sunshine and warm weather are not meant to be lazy indoor days. When it’s nice outside, I always head for the high school track. We would have gone for a hike but the trails are mostly likely still muddy, so the track was the place to be. I love running on the track because I can keep “track” of mileage through counting laps. I got in close to three miles, and surprisingly it felt great. I haven’t run since February so I was pleased. I am not supposed to do beyond two days of cardio training, but I truly enjoy working on my running and building stamina this way. I also feel wonderful afterwards.
A little post run stretch.
Without a shadow of a doubt, I am ready for Spring.
What is putting a smile on your face today?
