|Is it really February?! Gorgeous!|
Not only was the sun out, but it was also almost 40 degrees - pretty much a heat wave if you ask me. I was really pumped to bust out my capris and pretend like it was April.

I had anticipated doing 4 miles today but felt pretty awesome the whole run so did a mile cool down and ended at just over 5. Since I threw Tempo Thursday out the window and was running for fun I didn't care about my pace and rarely looked at my watch. The few times I did, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it stuck right around 12 minutes. I guess any pace seemed easy today compared the the 11 minute miles I've been running the past two days!

It was probably one of my favorite runs that I've done. I felt awesome the entire time both mentally and physically and the route I ran was great. Well, minus the part where the road turned into an off-ramp for the expressway and I had to play chicken through four lanes of traffic in order to avoid being a pedestrian on 490. Either mapmyrun.com failed me, or I'm just really bad at following my own route instructions. But hey, I got a few adrenaline-filled seconds of speed work in today.
I'm feeling UHmay-zing after today's fun run, but not gonna lie... after three days on I'm really excited for my day off tomorrow. Lean cuisine pizza, diet coke, a gossip mag and my beloved stick roller... it's about to be a great night tomorrow.
