Off I went running my little heart out when up ahead, a deer was standing in the middle of the path. I figured he would move, after all, I was darting right toward him. But no, he just stood there and stared at me. Really?!? So I got about 15 feet away and started walking. THEN he decides to take about 10 steps in to the field and just stare at me. I was hoping he didn’t charge after me once I passed. You never know with animals! It was neat to be able to be that close to him. That apparently was the night for deer to be out; on the way back we passed a field that had 5 deer, and then further up there were 3 more. I wish I would have taken a picture. Unfortunately a camera is not part of my running ensemble.
Wednesday ended with a 3.5 mile run. I am still using the couch-to-5K to try and improve my time. Right now it’s a little frustrating; I’m supposed to walk for 2 minutes in between running but am only doing 90 seconds of walking because 2 minutes feels too long. 90 seconds actually feels too long as well, but I don’t want to get ahead of myself. So I still try and tough it out and walk the full time. I know I am running faster on my spurts though. Chad made a comment that he had to ‘keep up with his fast wife’. That’s a first! He’s usually way ahead of me!!!
Chad didn’t get to see the deer on the path. I guess the deer decided to leave before Chad got to him.
