i went to work early this morning so i'd have time for a longer lunch time run. it was 68 degrees by the time noon rolled around. beautiful blue skies. white fluffy clouds here and there. a gentle 14mph wind! perfect!
i started out with plans to run around my holden's nature center loop, but when i hit the "road closed to thru traffic" sign, i decided to go straight instead and make this one an out and back. i ran out to where the road is gated off, ducked under the gate and ran to the first break in the road where i happened to notice the "no tresspassing private property" sign. oops! i turned around quickly and headed back to town.
about a quarter of a mile after i flipped around, i got hot, so i shed my shirt. dropped it on the ground actually. that's one of the dips in speed you'll see on the garmin info. the other dips were two 1-minute walk breaks. i was getting too hot, so i decided it was better to back off than to die.
i made it back, cleaned up a bit and now it's back to work!
