A restful litter-run
My wakeup HR was 47, and I felt great during my stretches. I ran for an hour along the parkway and enjoyed the run. The shade temperature was 62 (F) when I left home. I enjoyed the run and ran comfortable 11:30 - 11:45 miles. Since this was a rest run, I stopped to pick up several pieces of litter on the way out and again on the way back.
