Well. A lot has happened since my last post. I officially packed up all my stuff and moved out of my old, little apartment and in to a beautiful 150 year old farmhouse in the middle of a nature preserve. The preserve is all grasslands and is surrounded by about 3 miles of walking trail which is perfect for Boo. I was a little hesitant about moving here initially because I have never lived in such an isolated location, but it seemed silly to pass up this once in a lifetime opportunity.
By far and away my favorite part so far about the farmhouse is the amount of activities we can do outside now. I bought boo a tether and she is loving the new freedom. We spent a good portion of th e weekend with her leashed up and my doing yoga or lying on my mat. She loves to just sit and bask in the sun and I can’t blame her. The views just make you want to sit outside forever and just stare.
My favorite form of exercise is the spontaneous kind. The kind that isn’t planned and just appears organically and feels so good. Enter saturday morning. It was my rest day, but I wanted to go for a walk around the preserve because I was still up early. I started walking, but then my legs and body were just aching for a run and I took off. I ran about a mile and a half completely care and time free and it was amazing. It felt incredible to not be bound to anything; my watch, the road, a machine. I plan on doing this more often, just going. I love working out, don’t get me wrong, but some days it can feel like a chore. I’m glad this move has helped to reinvigorate me and I’m excited to take on other new adventures fitness or otherwise.
