I took off at a nice relaxing pace and stayed at a relaxed pace based on my breathing. I listened to the birds and other animals and realized once I got a few blocks from my house I didn't hear the phoebes any longer. I stayed in my subdivision and did my best to look at as many front yard gardens as I could. I turned down streets that I hadn't been down in a year or two and came away with some ideas of what I want and don't want for my gardens.
I finally got back closer to my house and had to look at my watch to see my time and distance. (This is where the 35-40 minute range comes in.) My thought was that if the run was going well I'd keep going for a few more minutes so I could finish four miles. OR, if I was closer to the three mile mark I'd just head home. I looked at my watch and it said 34:xx mins and 3.55 miles. Needless to say I kept going and finished my run with 4.2 miles.
The interesting part about my run (at least to me): the last 3.2 miles took the same amount of time for me to run than my 5K last weekend. The big difference, I liked Sunday morning's run.
This morning was another beautiful one so I went out on another run. This one was different because it was Maddie's second run.
