Hurray! Another week of Couch-to-5K successfully completed. I am a running goddess.
In other news, on Saturday, Paul and I drove out to Hippie Hollow in northwest Austin, a city park adjacent to Lake Travis in a beautiful, beautiful part of the city, all canyons and curvy roads and views of the lake. Hippie Hollow happens to be a clothing-optional park, FYI. After a long, hard semester, I wanted to go up there to relax and splash around in the lake. It was wonderful: we went up in the evening, as the heat of the day started to dissipate and the sun began to make its descent toward sunset. I went “swimming,” which was really just me flapping around ungracefully in the warm water and trying not to get smashed into the rocks by the tide. The waterfront is very rocky, almost dangerous—let’s just say that flip-flops are not the ideal footwear for Hippie Hollow. We didn’t stay long, since it was already evening when we arrived and the park closed around 8:30 PM. But I’m glad we went—I’ve been savoring the memory of Lake Travis ever since.
As for this week: onward to Week Three of C25K!
