Ran 5.6 miles @ 8:20/mile pace.
Paved roads, paved golf cart paths.
Slightly hilly.
Weather: Mid-upper 30s, sunny.

Today's purpose was recovery, and I really feel like I could use it! My legs are pretty tired, so taking it slow and easy was on the agenda. I ran down the road from my mother's house in Gainesville to a golf course. The sun was just beginning to rise and there were no golfers to be seen, so I decided to take a chance and run on the cart paths for fun. I was waiting for someone who worked there to chase me down and kick me off, but that never happened. Instead, I just had an enjoyable run.

I'm back down in Tampa now. Heading back up to Maine on Friday. Tomorrow's agenda calls for 12-15 miles with 10 at MP. Friday will be another short recovery run, likely of the 6-mile variety before I fly back up. Saturday a medium-paced volume run and Sunday a 20+ miler.

You mean it's 30F in Tampa, FL? Is it even possible?
I am always scared to use golf paths and get arrested:)

Run was actually in Gainesville, but yes, well into the 30s! There was even frost on my brother's car. I'm in Tampa now, but it's cold (for Tampa) here also.
