I mean. My feet are sore as heck from it. There's also the risk of scabs on the back of my feet (or blisters), because those first three miles were in my work shoes which are not meant to be traveled in over long distances. (In hindsight, knowing what I was planning to do today, I probably shoulda worn my running shoes.)
This relaxing day of mine was made possible by a slight change in work, which--seeing how it played out today--I am surprisingly okay with. I can't go into the details as to this, of course. But I can say I was expecting to be grumpy, yet I was feeling soothing, even alive.
I wasn't really feeling cold, either. I mean, obviously, walking around a lake at 7:30 AM in the winter time means I was cold, but once I stopped, I felt surprisingly warm, not even noticing the temperature. (It helped that after stopping, I soon got inside, so I didn't have to stand in the cold.) Of course, that...didn't last the entire day. I did eventually get chilly at the end of my shift...surprisingly enough. Considering it's been over a year since I've felt cold in the pool deck. Oh well. Now that I know that's an issue, I can adjust.
