I think this is a good place to do a Throw Back Thursday oriented post. I posted here the other day the recap of my goals from 2015 late summer to 2016 late summer. I am not much of a goal follower rather I am a task achiever. This information was cool to see. I would assert that i was successful in achieving my tasks and goals over this period of time.
When I look at the above 2 running routes. The span of time is important. At the March 5th 2013 run, I had almost no motivation to run and my wife drug me out the door. I huffle-walked most of it (huff and puffing beween maybe .2 mile segments of a 50% effort fartlek). In comparison, last night, the air was rough due to many local and regional fires. It was dusk, so I had on high Viz clothing but went without a lamp -- motivation to beat the low grey light that was on coming.
It was a great run, to walk in to my wife goin.... "Nu-uh, Are you serious?" -- I think I am finally getting to where I want to be. It was quite a good run. I had two points I had to stop for traffic, but other than that, it was great. I am feeling stronger as I push my gait which in turn increases/decreases my pace. I have misplaced my HRM and that is ok, but i need to find it. This is a great course loop for me as it provides a good baseline and it is not a track or oval with monotonous left turns only.
Now to find some comparison photos.
Bear with me, post is in progress.
