Xmas run

I dallied abed a little longer than I should have, and am now really a bit delinquent in terms of moving on to the next stage of the day - but I began the morning with a really lovely hour-long run. I am in Tampa, people in Florida may complain that it's too cold but it's perfect running weather, sunny and in the low 60s!

(Twenty years ago this area must have been still truly bucolic, it's too developed now to really deserve that word but it's still rather beautiful in patches - I ran on a pedestrian path along Gulf Boulevard, which hugs what I am fairly certain is the Intracoastal Waterway. Very quiet, lots of sea birds and that good feeling of being close to the water...)

1.0hr., 5.64 miles, avg. pace 10:38, avg. HR 153, max. HR 164

Lovely!

Warm weather...sounds quite nice compared to the blustery cold of the Canadian north!

Hope you had an enjoyable remainder of your Christmas day!

Glad to hear the alligators didn't get you :-)

Warm weather, water and birds. The best place for a Christmas run.
