Nothing Like the Track!

The snow is gone, and yesterday, with temperatures in the 50s, and pouring rain, I couldn't resist making my first visit to the track of 2010. I ran a total of 4 miles (including the 3/4-mile to the track, and 3/4 back. Fairly easy pace, averaged 8:25/mile, but with some fartleks on the straight-a-ways. It is very hard to imagine running a 5-minute mile, or even a 6-minute mile at this point in the "season," but it was a great feeling to have the artificial surface beneath my shoes, and see the curve of the painted lane lines moving by as I ran. There's just something special about the track..............
