I love this time of year. As I'm driving down the country road or highway I see fields of beans that are ready to be harvested. They have a brownish gold cast to them. At harvest time when I go by a field of beans I always say look at that "FIELDS OF GOLD".
"FIELDS OF GOLD"
My hubby is always so happy when he gets to go to the field. He finally gets to see and harvest the finally product, he has worked so hard at all summer. We got a new combine this year. So my hubby has to get everything programed to just the way he wants it. Let me tell you with all this new technology, it's hard on us older people. What ever happen to the simple things in life. He's finally getting it programed just the way he wants it, but with a few choice words. If you have sensitive ears you probably wouldn't of wanted to be around. Ha Ha!
I rode with him most of the morning to see where all the new gadgets were, that way I would know how to run it when he took the beans to town.
It runs a lot like the old one, but with a few more technical things.
Can you tell we love our JOHN DEERE GREEN
This morning I worked out with Jackie Warner and got an easy 3 miles in, before I had to go help my hubby in the field. I was so glad I did my 12 miler yesterday. I wouldn't of had enough time to do it this morning. When I started my legs where feeling so heavy and tired. I was thinking to myself this is not going to be a very good run. I hate it when I have negative thoughts, before I even get started. I know I will feel better, when I get done. It took at least a mile and a half before I actually started to feel like I was going to get through this run this morning. When I finally got done I looked at my garmin and to my surprise my pace was pretty good. My splits were 10.23,10.09,9.53. Holy Crap! A Negative split "SWEET". I really didn't think I had it in me this morning. Just goes to show you that, you should always try even if you are not feeling it. More than not you will do better than you thought.
Have you ever thought you didn't do so well in a race and than you ended up with a PR?
Are you enjoying this great Fall weather?
