Marathon Park and Capitol Lake road run

I felt much improved over yesterday... whew. I did start out feeling sluggish again but kept getting better and better.

Today I got out of bed earlier resolved to get in a quality run before going to the conference at 7:30.

Yesterday I found a trail around part of Capitol Lake that is like a mini Green Lake. It's about 1.5 miles around the loop so I ran it four times. There is a gravel shoulder by the sidewalk when you are running next to the road and the path around the park is gravel as well so the while thing was softer than pavement. Nice.

Another thing that was nice is my last lap was my fastest and then on the way up the hill back to the hotel I pushed it pretty hard (for me). It sure felt like my heart rate was higher than 160 but that's probably just a reflection of where my fitness is right now.

I saw several folks two and three times and each time I would pass them their smile would be just a little bigger.

Today was a bit of a moral booster and a nice start to the day.

Today I also did not eat before heading out and did not take anything with me. This early in the day and at this pace and for this length of a run I guess it works.
