1. I did a quick 4 miles this morning and despite the humidity coming back, I felt like running fast. With the exception of my left glute/hamstring feeling a little tight, my legs felt recovered from Monday's long run. 1.25 miles in I decided to throw in some quarter-mile surges with quarter-mile recovery jogs. Luckily it worked out that it was time for the fast parts on the flattest sections of my route. I missed the time after the second interval, so did half a mile rest before starting the third.
#1 - 1:49
#2 - 1:46 (which is a 6:59 pace and you don't know how happy it makes me to hit that speed smack-dab in the middle of the run!)
#3 - 1:54 (uphill)
Total of 4.1 miles in 35:04, 8:33 pace. Stoked!
2. Zeke has his Kindergarten orientation tonight and will have the chance to ride the school bus before the first day on Tuesday. He is super excited and I'm having the I'm-excited-for-you-but-am-sad-at-the-same-time-that-you-are-old-enough-for-school-already feelings. *sigh*
3. We visited Reid State Park a couple of afternoons ago. Yet another gorgeous place to go close to home...
