This morning, I had lots of time, but lots of chores. Fortunately, I had a goal of only eight miles to run. For the life of me, I could NOT decide where to run. I’ve been blasting through gasoline like water lately, so I couldn’t justify driving a great deal. Finally I decided on Aliso/Wood Canyons (surprise!). I ran Aliso Canyon, turned right into Wood Canyon until I reached four miles. Then I turned around and ran back. I saw four coyotes (not all at once, actually two at a time). I saw the loner blue heron I always see. And I came across many hikers.
My foot felt pretty darn good, just some slight pain toward the end of the eight miles. And I ran faster than usual, so I was more fatigued than usual after this length of a run.
