A running total of 3 km and 18 minutes, 10 of which completely barefoot, brought me to the lake shore and to my parents, who had walked around the lake while I ran. I took of my t-shirt and shorts and jumped in the lake. Well. It was more like I slowly lowered myself into the cold water.

Sunshine warmed my body once I came out of the lake during the short periods of time when clouds parted to let it through. My feet, which ached before I went into the water thanks to the gravel-covered forest paths "massaging" them, found relief in the cold water and were buzzing with energy. Once I was dry enough, we walked home leisurely, stopping for my dad to take photos and to admire the explosion of colours in other people's gardens.
Knee is doing fine. The tendon on the back of my leg is a bit sore but nothing that I can't stretch away. I hope. Despite the threat of summer rain in the air, my mood is definitely sunny right now.
