A Spring In My Step

Wow. What a first day of Spring! Ran seven miles at Lake Lynn on a beautiful, sunny day...a nice 79 degrees when I started.

I felt pretty light on my feet too. I seemed to glide. I was in the zone. Had my hat, sunglasses and iPod on, head down, oblivious to my surroundings. Thank goodness no one tried to kill or kidnap me today, because it would have been easy to do. I paid zero attention to anyone around me.

Well, I did say hi to the two city police officers on horseback. It was a pretty incredible sight to see them roaming the park on horseback. I don't think I've ever seen them in these parts of town.

And I gave a friendly two finger wave to two dudes I passed.

But everyone else I ignored.

The first five miles were easy. Yes. You heard right. EASY. I was thinking the whole time "it's spring and I have a spring in my step!" As I finished my second loop around the lake, I decided to see if I could finish the remaining miles in my neighborhood. Watch had 4.82 miles. Wow. I still have a good two miles to go! So I continued on the greenway around the lake and turned around to finish the mile heading home.

The problem with this is that this is completely a slant UP. It's very much like running the uphill path from Black Creek to Montibello...just a constant, gradual UPHILL run.

But nonetheless, I pulled through to end up having an overall average 10:28 mn/mile with my max heart rate at 191, which was that last mile, running up that freaking hill.

I had a good playlist going too:
