Well, I didn't quite make it up early yesterday, but I did take advantage of the beautiful weather during lunch. Since I've been feeling a bit of pain in my right knee, I decided to run on a dirt road that cuts through farmland near my house.
It was a nice change of scenery from the neighborhoods I usually run through. Nothing but blue skies, a few trees and open pastures. But I swear I attracted every flying insect within a 10-mile radius. Those suckers were relentless! I'm surprised the freeze last week didn't wipe them out. They became my little cheering section, though, threatening a full-on attack if I stopped.
I think I put in about four miles -- can't quite be sure as my pedometer gave out two miles in. I need to map out a few courses, I guess, so I don't have to rely on one. I just get tired of running the same loop, and it seems I'm able to go farther when I don't know exactly where I'm going.
Tuesday nights we have optional Team runs. I haven't been going, but I'm starting tonight. I think we're doing track work -- not really sure what that entails, but I'm pretty sure I'll be sore after!
