Single Digits

It’s officially wind down time.  My next several runs will be single-digit-mileage.  Today, I took to an old favorite, an out-and-back to Top of the World in Laguna Beach.  I got some minimal climbing, seemingly endless rolling hills, cool breezes, blue skies and spring flowers in about 6.5 miles.

Though the pressure’s on, the pressure’s off – see if that makes any sense. Smile

    1. Thanks for the encouragement Hank. But, you will still blow me out of the water on both long & short distance runs. Thanks for rooting for me. :) I will need it.

  3. Gotta be a great feeling to wind down and know that your last 20-miler was safely in the time constraint! Enjoy the lighter mileage? (Though I know you seem to thrive on lots of long runs!)

    1. Thanks Lindsay. I really appreciate your comments. I am enjoying the lower mileage, but I still have the urge to go for more. :)
