The temperature warmed up to about 45, and it was just right to hit the roads. I set my alarm to alert at 15 minutes, hit the start button on my watch and off I went. I forced myself not to look at my watch for my pace or see what my heart rate was. I just going out for an easy run as per my coach.
I was really enjoy getting out into the fresh air. I thought about training for the NYC Marathon and the upcoming training about to happen. I thought about the training Irene will have to do for your races and getting to do long rides with her.
Speaking of bike rides, I noticed that winter has wrecked havoc on the streets. Potholes all over the roads, which is not a good thing for runners and bikers. In fact, I sprained my ankle right before the 2008 NYC Marathon, and for years my ankle was not healthy.
