Got started at 11:30 am today. Easy, relaxing run from home to LPT (Legacy Parkway Trail). Mostly sunny, temps around 50 degrees. Felt really good the first 9 miles then sort of slid of the track. The nice thing about this aerobic conditioning is, even when I'm not feeling so great, my body can still maintain the run.

Ran this afternoon on LPT. Clear skies, mid 60's. Had planned on 6 miles but felt pretty good today so added on. Another good day to be alive.

Drove to LPT and ran 7.5 miles this afternoon. Overcast, 47 degrees, NW wind at 9 mph. Tailwind going out, chilly headwind coming back...brrr! Short sleeves, shorts, gloves. My fastest average pace to date.
