Trail Runnning

Does this give you any indication of how my day went? I was overly optimistic when I decided it was a good idea to trail run with the husband, you know one on one time. I can honestly say that was the hardest run I "attempted" since running. Hills go straight up and I narrowly survived walking up them. My turkey and provolone sandwich threatened to make it's way up a few times. Of course husband can run the entire course over and over. Must.Be.Nice. One day I will get to that point. I have a tendency to set a goal and fail...miserably. So, short logical goals are best for me. I was sore an hour after running. That can NOT be good. Just my personal opinion though. I would love an armband and some sort of thingy I can keep water in. I know I say this all the time but I hate carrying anything when I run. I feel like it sucks the energy right out of me. I run better when my arms and hands are free. Or perhaps I am just particularly choosy. I have a few weird quirks when it comes to my comfort in sleeping, eating, tags on my clothes etc. So my hands being forced to hold something when it does not want to grates on my nerves. 
 That's my "no mo pictures" look. I am make-up less hot and nauseated. I just added a nice little filter on this pic so I wouldn't scare anyone away. Fun times. Tomorrows plan is to run earlier. I survived 96 degrees marginally. 
  Oh! I went to the thrift store earlier in the week just to see what I could find. I feel in love with these flats for 4$. There was no wear on them so I was confident I wouldn't contract a foot fungus ;)

  2. Regarding water bottles: Please continue to carry one in your hand. I once felt as you do (I think we all did). Now with 3 years of trial and error, I ALWAYS carry a bottle - just don't feel right without it. And sadly, a Fuel Belt is an indicator of a beginner. Anyway, keep going.

    1. Your probably right. I just need to get used to holding something while running.
