Shady Lady

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!!!!
