The holiday feel

An absolutely lovely run just now in Riverside Park with C., who is a much faster runner than I am--just as well we only really got going at the end...

(It's sunny and clear and fifty degrees and a university holiday--now I must go and get a move on to be in time for the string of student appointments that I thought I would take advantage of the holiday to schedule! Really holidays are as naught--except insofar as allowing for exercise-related decadence...)

5.23 miles, average HR 151

Mile splits: 9:30, 9:26, 9:09, 9:18, 8:37. Lap end pace for last little bit was 7:40; I can definitely run one mile at 7:40, not sure about more than that...

Oh, I am longing for the future in which I can comfortably run eight-minute miles!

It is rare someone thinks of exercise and decadence as part of the same phrase ...
