|Today's 8km walk.|
Walking this morning allowed my thoughts to go where they will and, at the same time, enjoy the scenery much more up close than when running. One of these idle thoughts took me back to last night when I was feeling tired and, to be truthful, a little on the lonely side. I was standing at the sink washing one saucepan, one plate, one knife, one fork and one spoon when I decided it was alright to let a few tears mingle with the soap suds. It was short-lived, no gushing hysterics and didn't add much to the detergent in the sink, but cathartic nonetheless.
However, when I turned to reach for the tea towel to dry the one saucepan, one plate, one knife, one fork and one spoon, right behind me sat Amy and Oscar looking very woe-begone and concerned....as if they really wanted to join in whatever they thought was going on. How quickly they pickup on the mood of their mistress! Naturally, I had to jolly myself up, get out their packet of treats and reward them for their loyalty and understanding!
What all that has to do with cross-training I haven't the faintest idea!
