Today's run was so good for my face. How's that, you ask? There was this very fine mist falling, so fine that at first I wasn't even sure there was precipitation coming down. But there was and so I figure 40 minutes of such a fine mist has to hydrate the skin on my face—and that's a good thing!
Dare I say today's run was not hard, almost routine? I even had one of those fleeting moments when I forgot I was running and just moved gracefully along listening to the music. As I ran that last .1 miles and was reviewing the run in my head I thought, "Wow, this was pretty o.k. Not a huge amount of effort." I rate my effort as a 5 or 6.
Next week will be a test. I have to go out of town on a quick overnight business trip. Can I run before I leave one morning and then run when I get back the next day? Psyching myself already to do it.
