After work I knew I wanted to do something additional.  My legs were not really too sore after today so I went for a run.

 Before I went for a run, I cut the sleeves off this old Superman T shirt.  See how much more bad ass I am?  Well, even if you don't see it, I felt it !

I completed 2 loops of my usual park run.  I ran faster than I usually do.  I did my bench jumps on the second loop faster than I usually do.  I kicked ass and still felt strong at the end.

I mentioned on my Tumblr page earlier that I went for a run, completely solo.

No phone.  No music. No Nike +. No HRM.  No watch.  No nothing.  

You know what? I kinda liked it.  I wasn't feeling pressured to keep my heart rate at a certain level.  I wasn't worried that I wouldn't reach my usual check points in a faster or slower time.  To speak freely....

I didn't give a shit about anything except for my running.

And that... ladies and gentlemen, makes me a happy little Vegemite.

Now, off to chow into something tasty for dinner... I am starving!
