Record Temperatures ... No Record Running Pace

Tuesday, April 20, 2010
Deciding to run late in the afternoon meant high temperature and low running speed

It was just the second full day of sunshine and it produced a record high temperature for NW Montana. Since I did a cross training bike ride just before lunch, I didn't get out for a run until later in the afternoon.

(Bullet Points)

o Sunny warm day
o Decided to run up Batavia Lane to Sherman Road
o Did some walking early on during the Sherman uphill jog
o Alternated run/walk for the last mile or so of the uphill to the turnaround

o Some pauses along the downhill on Sherman Road to photograph the Carr farm, farm animals, and "Oreo" the dog (first time that I have seen Oreo this year!)

o Ran/jogged most of the return trip until the last 1/2 mile or so
o Picked up cans during the last 1/2 mile

-- Gps quit for some time, but the log should be ~ 7.2 miles for the day
