This past weekend we had amazing weather. On Saturday it was 75 and sunny. Not a cloud in the sky. The way my running schedule was shaping up, I had planned to do a 7 mile run on this day. I was planning on heading out after the kids went to bed like I did last weekend.
Instead after we came inside from being out at the playground, my wife asked me if now would be a good time to go running. The baby was down for a nap and my boys were watching Curious George calming down from the adventures at the playground. I went for it. I told her when I would be back and got changed.
Ahh, running in the sun. It felt so good. I cannot remember when I last got out there with just shorts and a t-shirt. The run was not my best run. I guess I either did not drink enough during the day or lunch was not fully digested. I went slowly. I put on a nice long mix on the IPOD and decided to make it a nice long slow run.
The first half was with the sun shining directly on me. There were times I wanted to cut it short and just do 4, 5, or 6 miles. I finally felt warmed up after 5.5 miles. I finished my 7 miles and feel good.
I cannot wait for spring.
