Photo Friday

When I got up for my 20 mile ride/1 mile run brick this morning, I really wasn’t feeling it.  So rather than fret about my speed or stamina, I gave myself a fun bloggy reason to stop and smell the roses…errrr, take some photos!  Here’s what my workout looked like today:

Friday Fotos 002Pretty cheerful considering it’s not even 6 am.

Friday Fotos 006That’s the moon setting in the distance.  In real life it was so huge I felt like I could reach out and touch it!

Friday Fotos 007Shadow pictures crack me up, with my huge shoes and wheels and teeny, tiny pinhead.

Friday Fotos 008Wild Turkey Mama and her baby drumsticks!  This is actually the same field that is pictured above, just from a different street.  My route this morning was a 5-mile loop that I circled four times.  Yes, it’s boring, but it’s close to home and has mostly right turns, so I don’t get stopped very much.  Unless I’m taking pictures of turkeys.

Friday Fotos 009All done with my ride, time to get running!

Friday Fotos 010The beautiful paved nature trail that is right across the street from my house – I am such a lucky girl!!

Friday Fotos 011Turnaround point.  I was soooo glad to be on my way home, I swear this was one of the longest miles I’ve ever run.

Friday Fotos 012Yay!  Done!

Garmin ScreenshotIt wasn’t especially fast, but I got ‘er done.  Note the 6-minute transition time, lol!

 

The Great Big Bloggy Post Exchange update:  I’m so excited with the turnout so far for my Bloggy Post Exchange!!  Some of my favorite bloggers have joined the fun – how about you?????

Great workout and pics! I totally do that when I'm not feeling one of my long runs and have gotten some good nature shots.

Only 970 calories? A workout like that should be way more - all you can eat more!!

Great workout, by the way.

This is so great!! :) Nice workout!

(I sometimes get lost in my shadows too... running with the sun is setting is my fave because my shadow is soooo long and I will never look so lanky and skinny!)
