I’m still running happy
unlike the miserable swim I had last night! This morning was a glorious 63 degrees when I hit the road. Between the temperature and the fact that I didn’t get rained out again, I was near ecstatic. I’m a cool weather runner and feel “perfect” around the 55 degree mark but 63 is still good. It’s certainly much improved over the 80s, 90s & 100s which we have been experiencing.
Today was calm, cool, clear and the moon lit the way perfectly.
I ran an easy 5 miles and could have gone further
if I didn’t have to go back inside so Mick could leave for work. I’m definitely not pushing the pace but just enjoying being back on the road. I averaged 9:50s. Of course, I felt much faster like I was sailing an 8:30 to 8:45 but each beep of the watch brought me a 9:50ish.
I didn’t have any pain until mile 4 and then I could feel a little heat at the tear site of the tendon. It wasn’t bad but I could feel it. Now, post run, what I really feel is the Plantar Fasciitis in that foot. Yes, I took 2 months off without one day of running and my Plantar Fasciitis is still throbbing. Awesome, I know. We’ll knock that out next, right? One day at a time. No more. No less.
I hope you were able to get out this morning to enjoy the cooler temps! Do you prefer morning or evening runs? Are you in short sleeves or a tank at 63 degrees or do you go to long sleeves?
