Comments: I ran longer and a bit faster than I had scheduled. Why? Because I can. Because I hadn't run over my scheduled mileage yet this week. Because it was a beautiful morning. Because tomorrow is a day off.
Comments: My first race of the season. I wasn't sure what kind of pace to even shoot for. I ran the first 4K loop with my neighbor, then turned on the after-burners to come home in a "blazing" 43:46. Irony: It was my slowest 8K race ever, but it was also the first time I ever got an age group award: 5th place. I did not ask, and do not want to know, how many men there were in my age group.
Comments: A little warm, but I didn't run hard enough to really work up a sweat. Look out tomorrow. Did the full Daily Dozen yoga workout, plus a little core excercise on the new exercise ball. I'm a BEAST!
