By The Light Of The Moon….

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. 

Me_dark_8-2-12I 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?
