The first thing I noticed was the fact that all roads, main and side were lined with debris so even if there were sidewalks I could not run on them. Unfortunately drivers did not seem to think they needed to take extra care around these areas even if there was a runner trying to navigate around the same debris. I have never had to jump out of the way of a car before while running or actually thought I was in danger of getting hit. TWICE I thought I was going to get hit and ONCE I jumped over a puddle to get out of the way just to have the driver not even attempt to avoid said puddle and splash me. Now there was no traffic coming in the opposite direction NOR was there even a double yellow line since it was a side street, they just didn't give a shit.
Even though we had one tree professionally removed it was so much brush and wood that it has to go into the street so imagine how it is when it is just exhausted and frustrated homeowners just trying to get it out of the way and off their houses and cars..... I can not thank my landlord enough he took care of everything for us so fast and was out there himself working on things even without power at his house! Thank you Gordon!

Oh and back to my run.....my body and mind were so very tired. I really had to push and I just couldn't seem to get going. My legs were tired and I was feeling sore in the backs of my thighs and my ankles which I have not had before. I am hoping it was just the bad footing on the roads. It just proved to me that I need to get back into the groove of running and yoga!! Oh and I will be trying Anti Gravity Yoga for the first time this week! I am sooooo excited!!!
Do you do yoga? What is your favorite type? My has always been Vinyasa but I am excited for this week!!
