8.26 Miles @ 7:53 Pace - HR 156.

Ran in Gatesville while visiting my parents. My foot felt good, the weather was good. The run felt good. Things are looking after this run and Saturday's run.

Definitly making improvement on the fitness side of things. I ran 4 miles 3 weeks ago at 8:28 and my HR was 156. Today it was 8:28 with a 147 HR. I can't describe how better it feels now. It's almost like my arteries have finally popped open allowing the blood to flow. A few weeks ago my HR would jump to 160 on the first mile no matter what speed I ran. Today it was only 136.

7 Miles @ 8:01 Pace - 153 HR.

Feeling better (body not foot). It was pretty warm today at 63 degrees. I guess it's already summer. I killed a rattlesnake yesterday, tried to post a picture but can't seem to make it work. Something has changed in the program of the blog.
