For a while today, along the path towards the hill at the end, I had an honor guard of rabbits. It was foggy this morning, barely able to see a couple hundred yards ahead of me, and about every 10 feet there was a small rabbit (probably not the same one each time, but maybe?) on the left of the path. As I neared it each time, the rabbit would duck into the underbrush. But the last of the rabbits -- or the last time the same rabbit came out -- jogged with me for a bit, going about five feet ahead of me, and then stopping, and then continuing, doing that for thirty feet or so.
He was like my spirit guide.
I'm only running every fourth day now, the same course, but I haven't been able to run the entire thing since that day I had to stop. So I've let myself walk a bit of it, but each time I cut down on the walk. Today, I walked only 90 steps; next time it'll be 80 steps, and so on.
And I read an article that said working out 30 minutes a day is better than working out for an entire hour, which made me first think Hey! I'm right! and then think Aww, man!.
HEY, I'M RIGHT: Working out 30 minutes every day is the way to go!
AWW, MAN: Participants lost on average, 8 pounds in 3 months.
