Monday - 1.01 walk 18 minutes (17:49 mm). Stroller walked the baby to sleep.
Tuesday - 3.15 walk 58 minutes (18:24 mm). I was worried that I was coming down with a cold or sore throat so I walked rather than ran.
Wednesday - 1.20 walk 20 minutes (16:24 mm). Stroller walked the baby to sleep.
Thursday - 4.4 mile 55 minutes (12:29 mm). A lovely run. Includes the warm-up and down and a 2:1 ratio. The moon was bright like it was a big round LED light. 46 degrees out.
Saturday - ChocolateWife took the ChocolateKids on a Playdate and said I was free to do what I wanted. Normally I just run around our neighborhood (on concrete or asphalt) but I decided to head to a city park to run the trails. I also had only expected to run 5 or 6 miles but since I had time I decided to make it a longer run. Including warm-up and down I ran 9.0 miles in 2.0 hours (13:20 mm). The first 1:15 or so I did a 90:60 and then dropped to 60:60. I honestly think that running 9 miles on trails is about like running 10.5 or 11.0 on the street. I kept thinking of that old saying about going up hill to school, both ways. I felt like I just ran up and up hill and never down. It was probably one of the most fun runs I've ever had.
