Easy Run

This morning was a very easy run with a good friend of mine. I haven't seen him in a while so after talking to him last week we decided to go for an easy 5 miler today. I got to his house a little after 9 and off we went in the cold cloudy morning air.



It was nice to run hard or fast and have a nice conversation. We caught up on each other's race schedules, family, Christmas Trips, and even some politics. We did about 5 miles in 53:41 which is almost 10 minutes slower than my race last weekend. But it is good for your metabolism to get in a slow run from time to time. Below is the route we ran on the WO&D and the Four Mile Run Trails.

I think those nice easy runs with old friends are the best kind of runs :)

It will be nice when they finish the four-mile run redo, which will make it a direct connection from the GW trail to W&OD without using side streets or stoplights. Supposedly soon, or so the detailed plans say.

Catching up with a friend on a nice slow run is the best...
Glad you're getting back to consistency and feeling good!
