Summer in November!

What a glorious day we had here today, 17C (63F) calm, sunny and felt like a summer day!

Stretches, easy w/up, more stretches (left calf still tight) and then some easy running on the golf course. The course closed yesterday on Halloween and so I had it all to myself, running down the middle of their plush fairways. Was thinking that I needed a camera to show off how beautiful it is. Some of the Fairmont Algonquin ads call it 'a course to die for' and I must agree, for running on that is! Ended up doing about 4.5 mi in 38:00 mostly on the grass. The legs felt good, just the tight calves that I'm nursing along. HR was up despite the slow pace and my efforts to just jog easily but wanted to just kept going and going. However, its hard to fit a run in on lunch break and a meeting awaited me so I returned to work. Later felt a bit tired but 'the good kind of tired'. Now already looking forward to Thurs once I get through another dreaded REST DAY tommorow!

ps. also managed to get in 3 sets of crunches and pushups when 1st getting up this am, before becoming fully awoke and the body knew what was happening (trick sometimes works for me)

Yes, the pushups and crunches. I too do them before I am aware of what's happening. It's the only way.

All the courses here are behind chain link fences - no access. However some have trails along side so you get a glimpse of the course here and there. I've often thought it would be neat to run their pathways during the the off season.

I enjoyed the pics in your previous posts.

Too bad you couldn't have had this weather a couple of weeks ago!
