Today I ran the route I’ve been running the most as my 3 mile route in reverse. Well, and I ran across the street and back for more sunlight. My overall average wasn’t my best, but I’m pleased with my third mile (hill-aided) being as fast as it was, and finishing with a strong pace.
I forgot what a great song Stand is by Blues Traveler! I didn’t run to it; it was part of my cool-down. But it is definitely going on my fartlek playlist. Most of the last 0.8 miles was on Lake of Silver Bells (but not the full 10 minutes, since it’s a live track and half of that is stage banter, or maybe one of the times they came out into the crowd and played unplugged, IDK, I skipped to Read About It because I was almost done and needed more motivation to keep pushing).
