Please please please, I need some warmer temps. Well, at least it wasn't as cold as Wednesday morning. Two layers worked well and my face mask was overkill, so I took it off after the first mile. I managed to get my heart rate into its target zone after just half a mile. How did I do that you ask? I got barked at by two enormous dogs that were standing in a neighborhood front yard without any type of leash. I guess their owners thought that no one was crazy enough to be out and about at 5 AM in the morning. At least the barking wasn't followed by a chase. Thank god, I was not in the mood for a foot race with two dogs this early in the morning. Actually, I don't think I will ever be in the mood to be chased by dogs, even though I had been informed many times that that would be the only reason anyone should ever run. Richard was running late this morning, so he drove to meet me half way between my house and his office, where we would meet up with the rest of our running group, Mike and James. Once at the office, we ran a route new to me, which made the run much more entertaining. We included the local outdoor mall "Bridge Street" in our loop which allowed us to integrate some stairs as well as a non-working escalator into our workout. Hey, anything to keep the runs entertaining. Twelve miles total for the day. During the run, Rich and I also decided that it was time to get back to working speed and hills into our workouts again starting next week. He dared to call some of our miles "junk mileage". You got it. Starting next week, we will be alternating speed one day a week and hills the following week.
