Fabulous run just now. It was my priority for the (exercise) day - alas, due to usual inability to get out of bed, I didn't run this morning, which is what would have let me go to TNYA practice this evening as well; and I dragged my heels upon getting home from work, though I suppose I technically could have run and then swum (swam?), to the point where I realized I'd better get myself out the door for a run before I talked myself out of doing anything at all!
I am determined to take advantage of hills and cool weather while I still have 'em, and to do pretty high run mileage this week and next. Jogged over to Central Park and did 3 x the upper loop, which has an excellent hill. Jogged home. The pace doesn't sound that fast, and I'm not as quick as I have been at various times in the past, but I definitely feel as though I'm regaining fitness - I feel pretty strong out there.
6 miles, 56:34, avg pace 9:26, avg HR 149, max HR 170
(I messed up the HR/speed averages for the first loop because I had to stop to turn off the "over zone 2" alert, but the average HRs for lap 2 and lap 3 were 155 and 157 respectively.)
