I was busy during the morning, and it was late afternoon when I went running. Even though my wakeup HR was 48 this morning and I felt pretty good, I could tell I was tired. I considered reducing my run to 4 miles but decided to go the full 5. My pace was slower (11:45 during the last half mile, typical for the entire run), but I enjoyed the run. The temperature during my run was in the mid to low 70s (F).
As we approach Fall and our first frost of the year in three or four weeks, I'm seeing more ducks bedding down in the river for the night. Last year I would see literally hundreds of ducks in the river at dusk.
