Long day at work, but the warm temps and sunshine made it easy to want to get out. Ran a hilly route route from the school and then followed it up with a session of strides.
Felt okay during the run but the strides felt fantastic. Nice to interject some form work there, I felt I could use it.
During the run, I saw a guy tapping maple trees as his two small children rolled around on the grass. I asked if the sap was running. He looked up, gave a huge, unforgettable smile and said "Yeah, a LOT!". Little things like that can totally make a run.
Ran 8.0 miles @ 7:46/mile pace, includes 10 X 100M strides at the end.
Paved roads, lots of puddles.
Upper 40s, sunny.
Saucony Virrata, shorts, short sleeved shirt, windbreaker, cap.
