Monday, 11/07/11 Longmont Run

8.6 miles/113 vert./1:02:25/7:16 pace/143 avg. HR Garmin Data

Got out for a run around the lunch hour and was pleasantly surprised that the weather was still decent (although there was a bit of cold breeze coming in from the North).  Followed cement bike paths and sidewalks mostly, but made it a point to run on the side of the paths/sidewalks in the dirt/grass/snow, just anything but running on the hard stuff if I could help it.  Felt like this run was pretty mellow (as I intended), but kept finding myself wanting to push the pace more (though refrained).  At the end of the run, I was very excited to stumble upon the LoBo trail that parallels Diagonal and then cuts through Niwot.  Eager to explore this a bit, as it is nice graded dirt and I will not be forced to degrade myself on hard surfaces.... ;).
