I still have issues sleeping on my side with my bruised ribs, but at least I'm starting to get back to normal when it comes to running. It's still slowing me down a bit, but I was able to average under 11 minute miles on this run, and I barely felt any pain at all as I ran, so I'm definitely improving. I still needed to take more breaks than usual, but I put in almost a respectable run.
I didn't have too long to run before I needed to be home for church, but I still wanted to go a little ways from home for this run, so I drove to Ketring Park to begin this outing. There are some good Pokemon nests at Ketring, Cornerstone and Belleview Parks, so I ran from Ketring to Belleview and back. I would have probably run another mile or two, but I ran out of time. Still, after wondering if my 100 mile month streak would end this January, I have hope that I can keep it going. I'm not there yet, but it's definitely within reach. Thankfully I was ahead of schedule when I hurt myself a week ago.
The photo for this day is a beautiful blue sky with a bit of Cornerstone Park art in front of it. I like how the photo turned out, even though there is nothing in the photo to give perspective of the size or context of the art. I think I like the blue sky even more than the art itself. It was a gorgeous sunny morning, and I needed a gorgeous sunny morning in my life on this particular Sunday.
