Mr. Cloud; How I longed to see you in the sky!

Can you say clouds?  YES! YES! YES!  Finally getting a break from the warm/hot running temps and that blistering sun!  A girl could get used to this!  Whoop Whoop!

It was 66 degrees when I started my run this morning and only 67 when I finished.  It was beautiful from start to finish.  Above is the starting picture from the house and below is the ending picture.

Today was a medium length run day, only 5 miles.  It was a good run from the get go!  Some days you just want to run, today was that day... I soaked up the motivation and hit the road.  I completed the 5 miles in 40:01, averaging an 8:00 mile pace!  Here are the results from this mornings run:

It even looks like I am starting to get some muscles....

Thursday is a short recovery run day of 3 miles.  Saturday will finish up the week with a long run of 8 miles!  Sometimes I think to myself that I should run more... I should be putting more miles down!  I am following a beginners/first time marathon running guide and it stresses increasing your miles slowly.  Increasing miles to quickly or not taking days off can lead to injury and that is just no good!  Miles will come with time... by week 10- 34 miles a week and week 12- 36 miles!
