I am so loving this weather!! It makes me smile, and then I immediately frown thinking that it's not going to last.
But for now, I am in heaven. And although I haven't taken advantage of it enough, I did today. I took off from my house at 6:45 and make a trek around the neighborhood. I opted for the streets rather than the trail so I could stay in the shade a little more. I am a big advocate for shade. No sunscreen is needed, the sun doesn't get in your eyes, and of course the temperature drops just a tad. I love the shade! I had my music today, and I totally guessed on the 5:1, but I think I ended up running more than I was supposed to. But it felt like a good run. I went a route that I thought was three miles, but I was a little short. I ended up with a 2.7 mile route at a 4.2 mph pace. Not too shabby.
I just got an e-mail from Coach Ric, and apparently we have another magic mile this Saturday. OH NO! The last magic mile almost killed me, and I am so afraid that I won't be able to repeat it. I can stress dream about this, I guess. It will take the place of the nightmares over next week's run.
Countdown to Warrior Dash-72 Days!!!!
