Once again I waited until noon to go running.  Didn't eat breakfast.  It's a nice warm day out with a beautiful gentle breeze.  I felt pretty good today and was running faster than normal.  I was on the east side of the Floodway and thought I saw a work truck over by the canal.  I got to University and saw a Flood Control truck underneath the bridge.  I ran to the other side of the Floodway and saw the canal gate open.  I figured it must've been Flood Control that opened it and by this time I had forgotten about the other truck I saw.  Then I saw it parked under a tree and realized it was Ronnie who had opened the gate.   I stopped and talked to him.  We literally talked about nothing for half an hour.  Anyway, I finally broke away and finished my run.  A little slower than what I started, but still faster than normal.

My legs didn't feel fresh at first, but I was running faster than yesterday.  Feeling better.  I saw a flock of six or seven rosey faced lovebirds.  Or peach-faced lovebirds.  At least that's what the internet said.  I took a couple of pictures, but they didn't turn out that good.

These guys have been sitting on my shelf for a few weeks waiting for me to call their number.  Today they got their chance.

What a difference an extra mile makes.  I chuckled to myself when I remembered that I used to tell people that anything less than three miles was a waste of my time :)

I haven't been doing my breathing treatments on a regular basis like I should be and it showed today.  Ran a 10 min. pace and it felt labored.
