I usually take Wednesday's off, because my legs need the break between speed sessions on the track. I just felt like I needed to get out there tonight for some reason. An easy run would do. I want to knock off a few pounds before summer when it gets hot, which should help speed me up, too.
I knew that I needed to take it easy or I would definitely pay for it during tomorrow's track workout. I started with an 11 minute mile warmup. I didn't feel like stopping to stretch, so I just kept slowly going. I barely cracked the 10 minute mile barrier the rest of the way, because I finished up the 5 mile run in 50:33.
The weather was perfect again. It was warm enough to break a sweat, but cool enough to feel good, too. I'm not sure what the temperature was, but it felt like it was between 66-70 degrees F. I hope it stays like this for at least a month, but I'm probably only dreaming.
