I know I absolutely have to get some Christmas baking done today since it is my son's last guitar lesson this afternoon until the New Year and I'd like to give his instructor some treats. But running errands picking up some last minute supplies, I noticed the wind starting to pick up and they reported wind gusts up to 50 kph this afternoon. Ugh! So I shuffled the order of my errands today, and realized there is no reason I can't get a quick run in first. With the wind I wasn't sure how long I wanted to go so left it as a free run with no set time or distance in mind. I thought it was a good time to try a new playlist so found a Rock of Ages playlist on a Spotify with the music from the original artists (not the musical) and off I went, winding in and out of my neighbourhood streets and pathways, trying my best to avoid the wind. 6.85 km and 44 minutes later, I feel refreshed and rejuvenated and ready to bake my little heart out. And the icing on the cake.... I loved the new playlist and plan to use it on my long run this weekend. Yay!
