It was a gorgeous day for running. The morning was cool, the afternoon was sunny and the evening cooled down again. There was no wind. I ran for an hour for just over 7 miles. It was my most comfortable run in a while. My heart rate was mostly near 150 with 5×30-second sprints taking the heart rate up in the 160s. My average speed was 8:26 per mile. I’m getting back to my pre-Phoenix Marathon form, but I have a long way to go!
During the last mile of the run, a little dog barked and lunged at my feet trying to bite me. The dumb thing (and I say that lovingly) came quite unexpectedly and almost tripped me over. Obviously the older woman had no control over him!! No harm no foul though.
