I almost didn't make it back to work today after my walk with this weather. Short sleeve shirt weather is great. It’s even going to be warmer tomorrow. This is my fastest walk of the year so far. I know it’s only a walk but I love the challenge of staying focused for the whole walk. It’s good practice for my running.
Tonight I made it out the door by 5. I knew I wanted to run a little faster after taking yesterday off and the weather being so warm. My first 5 miles went real well. I was right around a 6:30 pace for 4 of the miles and a 7:30 with one that has a long hill. The last 5 miles I backed off big time and just enjoyed the weather.
