The weather wasn't very good so my wife and I went to the rec center. During the winter, we'll probably go to the rec center more often due to weather inversions causing high pollution outside. While at the rec center, I don't count laps but run by time (1 hour including two or three rest stops). My wife does count laps and stops after 30 laps or 3 miles.

My wife and I drove to the East Pavilion in South Jordan and went south for our run. We haven't been on that route for several months, and it was nice to visit that part of the Jordan River Parkway again. It was a beautiful day, great temperature, and quite a few other folks were on the path. My wife walks faster than I jog/walk, so while she was waiting for me to reach our turnaround, she walked into a neighborhood that we've never visited and look as the nice (expensive) houses. When I reached the turnaround point, she was't there, and I began to worry that something had happened to her. After about two minutes, I saw her walking down a hill.

My wife and I went running in the late morning. There weren't many on the path when we started, but by the time we finished, there were more using the path. The temperature was in the mid 50s (F), and it was a nice day to be outside. We didn't see many birds in the trees that border the path.

My wife was out with our two grandkids who live nearby, so I went running by myself. I left in the early afternoon. The temperature was in the lower 50s (F), and it was a great day to be out. The sun was shinning, and there were beautiful cumulus clouds in the sky. Instead of turning around at our usual bench, I extended my run to the next bench, a total of 2.7 miles. I took extra rest stops to compensate for the longer distance. An increase of 0.2 miles isn't much for younger runners, but for an old guy like me, it is a significant increase.

My wife and I walked and jog/walked our usual route today. There were a few people on the path, but not many. After another week or so of this distance, I may add some distance and go to the next bench on the path. We're currently stopping at a bench about 1/4 mile south of the 106th South tunnel. The following picture, taken from the web, shows how I feel sometimes.
