The treadmill weather has been banished, at least for a few days, by brilliant skies, moderate temperatures, and cool breezes. I had a couple of meetings cancel unexpectedly on Wednesday, so I ran twice! What a luxury. And I don't have to leave for the conference I am teaching this weekend until early afternoon, so I was able to take in a nice, long, leisurely run this morning. The fourteen mile jaunt was the longest I have run since the St. Jude Marathon early in December. Needless to say, I took it nice and slow to avoid injury. The tactic apparently worked--and I feel great.
