This week started with the much appreciated Labor Day holiday. After a very warm late morning run of four miles, we returned to the lake in the late afternoon. The conditions were ideal and PoPo captured this for me just before sunset.
|Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy....|
The focus this week was regular ol' running. A cold front moved through and I took advantage of our chilliest morning (57 degrees) to work on speed, something I haven't done in quite a while. Although not particularly speedy, it felt good to push the pace. Yes -- there is work to be done!
|No tank top -- a dead giveaway it was chilly!|
My running friend Barbara joined me for most of my seven miler Saturday morning. With it being breezy and 62, this run felt great. It is not often that I have the opportunity to run with anyone, so when I get to chat and run -- the miles fly by. I wanted to keep running, but forced myself to stop.

I had not planned to run Sunday, but the thought of cycling in the wind was not appealing. Also realizing our weather was going to tank due to Hurricane Irma's new track, I decided to get in another run. I ran six easy midday miles, keeping my heart rate low (149). That put me at 22 miles for the week, more than I intended. Next week's lower mileage should even it out.
School has been cancelled. Publix has closed (peeps, this must be serious!). I'm storing all the possible missiles (aka yard art) from our back yard. And I'm busy catching up on laundry in case the power is out for an extended period of time. Obviously our weather won't be as bad as it is in Florida but my biggest fear is the huge trees (like in the picture above) will come crashing down...on our house. Stay safe everyone!
And that's a wrap!
How often do you run with someone else?
