Ran my rest-run of 3 miles

My wakeup heart rate was 56, and I felt pretty good. It was 11:30 AM when I started my run. I said I felt pretty good, but I didn't feel as good as I did last Saturday. I wasn't particularly tired during the run, but it was hot and I was drinking a lot of water. I stopped for a break twice when I saw a bench that was in the shade. It's amazing how a one-minute rest will rejuvenate ones body.

At the end of the run, I stopped to talk with a runner who had passed me a couple of times. He is 51 and has been running for about 25 years. He had run 12 miles and was preparing to leave in his truck. He said he runs a lot of races (marathon time is 3 hours). It's nice that he has continued to run during the 25 years!
