This afternoon I did eight easy paced miles after work. I wanted to take it easy for a few reasons.
First, I was breaking in my new shoes.
Next, it was in the 80*s (and I would say, on the blacktop it was closer to 90*s).
Last, I wanted to enjoy the run and the scenery.
I did take a couple 'shade' breaks, since it was so warm outside. And a couple water fountain pit stops (no need to overheat or dehydrate). But all-in-all it was a good run.
