It was an absolutely terrific run at lunch. I had planned to start Day 1 of an out-season training plan I selected from Garmin Connect, but my FR310XT was full of workouts from other plans. In the absence of a plan, freestyle is the way to go. The weather was glorious. There wasn't a cloud in the sky, but the wind was chilly. In a long sleeve tech shirt, vest and shorts, I was fine in the sun, but the shade was cold; therefore, I chose the sunniest route out of downtown. For shoes, I pulled out my Newton Distances for a change. I don't know why I don't run in them more; I really like them. They are going into the rotation on a regular basis.
I felt really light on my feet. The sluggishness I was experiencing at the beginning of the streak has disappeared, and I am now starting to feel like I have more than one speed. I kept my pace higher, but my HR didn't go through the roof - a good sign. I was more than a little surprised when I looked at the summary after the run. I had gone further and faster than I thought.
