I'm sticking to my plan of short runs all during the work week this week, so I hit the five mile loop from the school with a fellow teacher, Tim. I ran the first three with him, then he called it a day and I continued on for two more. Perfect running weather out with temps in the low 50s and partly cloudy skies. Ah, spring!
Forgot to mention it yesterday, so today is my second run in my new pair of Asics 2140s. I was long overdue for a new pair of shoes, and these feel great. They feel just like the 2130s in fact, which felt just like the 2120s. Hmmm.
Tomorrow will be a rest day. It's also the beginning of open-water fishing season, so me and the fly rod will be working one of my secret spots at a local river. I think fly fishing and long distance running are the two most Zen activities on earth. I'm surprised the Buddhist Monks don't combine these two on their paths to enlightenment. Who knows, maybe they do...
Ran 5.0 miles @ 8:19/mile pace.
