The plan was to go to the gym after work, and do some climbing on the Precor.
The 70 degree weather led me to throw that idea out the window. Luckily, I had thrown in alternate clothing options into the gym bag.
I got out of work a few minutes early, and headed to Salt Fork. The idea was to run some on the back dirt roads. The one item I had forgotten was the trail shoes. Since I only had the road shoes, I decided to stay on the road.
Gorgeous late afternoon. I found a new batch of daffodil greens coming up, and I noted where to come look at them again in a week. It does seem like we are going to have an early spring. The daffodils are coming up quickly, this seems far sooner than last year.
Once again, I had forgotten how long these two back roads were. I ended up with 7.25 miles, instead of the ..er 5 or 6 miles I thought it was. Dark had settled before I made it back to my vehicle (like the last time I did this run) but I was on a road, so it was good.
The legs were a little heavy but then felt good about mile 3. The ball on my left foot has felt a little funny the last two runs. It doesn't exactly hurt, but I am aware of it.
