I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
My parents brought Ruby a stuffed puffin back from their trip to Nova Scotia. They’d gone to photograph the puffins there.

Anyway, the stuffed puffin does a puffin call when you squeeze it. And I’ve got to say, it’s not the best sound. Kind of chain saw-esque. Click here for a taste. And, yes, Ruby does love to squeeze that thing.
I’m a bit worked from my run in the heat this morning and from actual work, so this’ll be a tiny post. Here’s Ruby from the weekend’s baby jogger jog. She rebelled on the second loop and decided it’d be best if I pushed the empty jogger while she did wind sprints in her Crocs.
Today’s Run: 90 minutes easy with 8 x 3min/hard & 3min less hard
This workout was hard not so much because it was hard physically (though it was), but because it was mentally daunting. 48 hard-ish minutes. I almost turned around and walked home after the warm-up. Then I ran 12 more minutes slowly, and then I sighed and whined a bit, and then I did it. I didn’t look at my Garmin, so I could avoid any negative feedback. I certainly felt like I was running nice and hard. No need to ruin that with objective data.
Hope you’re having a great day and you don’t hear any puffins.
