Did the Poplar Avenue Route. A slow one. The 4 miles took me 45 minutes this morning. Usually, after the first 3 to 5 minutes, I feel loosened up and get into my pace. That happens around the railway tracks at Morley's. I leave home and run across the Ag. Path, down to Morleys, cross the tracks and right there, I feel ready to run. After the tracks, there is that little down hill grade and everything seems to fall into place. I'm ready for the hill and 83 and the rest of the run.
Not so this morning. Yesterday, I didn't run but rather biked out to Pretty Valley. That's 33 miles and 1 hour and 54 minutes. Perhaps a little much for the first bike outing. My legs were stiff this morning. My whole run seemed like a warm up run and I never really got going. Short steps, stiff legs, pounding away and leaning too far ahead - like I was bucking head wind.
Oh well. Not everyday is a perfect run. Maybe next time out.
Seen another runner this morning. I think it was Jolie Verbo, but I'm not sure. It could have been somebody else?? I was on the Ag Path and she was going North on 9th Ave. She had a lime green shell on. and it was about a 1/4 to 7a.m.
Lots of Robins singing this morning. Still coolish tho - like a heavy white frost.
It's going to warm up,
