Looks like our wonderful 67 degree weather day is going to transition to rain pretty soon. Good thing I got my run in earlier. if you recall, I’m in the midst of a Project Austin and today marked the first time on the road since three visits to Accelerated Performance. Today was all about working on the list of things I need to change in my running form (and that list is long). The good news is the tweaks resulted in very little pain in the hamstring – definitely a plus since that area usually flairs up during every run. Maybe those torture deep tissue messages are going to pay off or it is simply terrified that if it makes its presence known it will get the hell gouged out of it again. With the good news is a little bit of bad news. Apparently these changes are engaging a different set of muscles that have been neglected due to the injury compensating. At about mile 4 started feeling the effects and ended up backing down to only 5.5 miles today. This wasn’t meant to be a quick journey so not concerned yet – real test will be next week to see how quick those neglected muscles are going to take before they kick in. For now it’s just all about the rest.
Speaking of resting, that is the theme of today’s post. Apparently my last post scared some of our readers (okay, some being ONE but she has some power over me). Who wouldn’t want to curl up next to a badger? all fluffy for comfort and you know, NO ONE will mess with you if you are sleeping next to a BADGER (especially a Honey Badger because those are just bad-ass). Instead I get a plea for a more pleasant looking animals. Sigh, figured I get kudos for bringing something new and intriguing but instead I get a fear response – not unlike when your lovely wife finds a mouse in the car. Fortunately, the badger wasn’t the only wildlife we captured that day. Rifling through the shoot I decided on something more cute and plushy but added some contrast to it by taking it in an icky setting.
This isn’t the first time we’ve featured Canada Goose goslings here at LifeIntrigued (link here) but this is probably the nastiest setting I’ve bothered taking them in. We had just arrived at the park and was caught off guard by the crowd of visitors. Generally there is not problem parking in the close lots, but that day we were parked way out on a back road. On our trek to the entrance these goslings caught my eye – yes, I did say goslingS!
