Don't you just love the spring breeze?

I did an easy 5 miles trail run yesterday, the earth was soft from the rain shower the night before, the wind was tough on me so 5 miles was enough.

How's your?

Ran 2.4 miles today (or should I say run/walk combo). Had a great day at school and was in a good mood. It was 90 degrees and humid (nothing like Texas weather). It felt really good to get out there (dog enjoyed it too).

Did 4 miles on the treadmill yesterday. This is the first time I've had to switch treadmills partway through b/c the guy next to me had such bad BO!

I guess he figured he didn't need to shower before coming to the gym, or the icky old (cotton) tshirt he'd worn a zillion times to work out in before was just holding the funk in despite being (presumably) washed; or he's just one of the unlucky folks whose natural sweat smells to high heaven.

Whatever it was, it was almost sickening to breathe. I'm just glad I got my run in despite it!

A beautiful morning run today for me - 2.2 miles again. It was 48 degrees out at 5:15 and a full or nearly full moon. We've got some clouds coming in so I got to watch the clouds and moon play hide and seek.

I'm running in a housing area just up the hill from me. It's a nearly flat, climbs 20 feet over the lap, nearly .5 mile loop. The first lap my breathing is a little raggedy and I'm wondering just how crazy I am. The beginning of the lap is really flat and I have a tailwind. As I turn the corner into the wind the road tilts ever so slightly upward. I enjoy the slight cooling effect of the wind. It's not blowing that hard.

Turn the next corner and the road bumps up, a little hill. Then a nice little downhill, back to the beginning. It's on this downhill that I really get to enjoy the moon.

By lap 2 I'm into a nice groove, my breathing is nice and even and laps 3 and 4 go well. I wonder how long I'll be sore this time.

4.33 miles on the treadmill yesterday, after swimming. It was in the low 30's with 20 mph gusts, so I weenied out and ran indoors. I am SO done with winter... and it's supposed to snow again for the next few days. feh

Yesterday, I ran 4 miles outside at a sub 9 min pace. My leg doesn't hurt today.
