Warm day, good crisp run. Swallowed the first bug of the season and ran by the first bee hive of the year. They were pretty aggressive... I will have to take a wide turn in the days to come.

Good run. A little warm for the AM 8, but a nice cool breeze. I remember to run wide of the bees nest today :) 

PM quick 4, 86 degrees, too hot for me... so I ran it faster to get back in! Maybe not the smartest thing.

Running.. different today. Started out, legs tired- left foot hurt a little. Pain left by mile 2 as I drifted into thought. Saw a crow eating a dead rabbit, that put me back, at least enough to avoid the bees. Overall warm for me but run turned out decent.

A little later start for my longer run today since the oldest works and helps out at a horse camp.  A little light rain on and off throughout the run. After warming up to some Cardio X my legs felt good to hold a better pace today, nothing blazing but a good steady run. That was until about 15 miles in, when I got the great idea to take a detour on my route and run the nearby hills on tired legs. Yes, THOSE HILLS (one person here knows what I am talking about, they are quite challenging), so mile 15+-19+ were hill running and although it really pulled down my overall time, it was worth it to me and hope it strengthens my late race endurance. I really would like to know my splits, but still Garmin-less so I have my overall pace at 8:16/mile - however I know the first 15 were well below 8 after throwing a few projections on what I ran those hills at. Yard work to come!
