Good night for running

An excellent night for a run! Got started just after sundown and the temperature was dropping pretty quickly. It was in the mid 40s when I started with almost no breeze . . . PERFECT running weather. The temperature when I finished was 40, so the temp dropped 4 or 5 degrees during my run. You know how you sometimes catch everything just right and have a super run? That was tonight.

1 mile warmup (about 9 minute pace)
4 miles of fartleks (3 pickups/3 recoveries per mile. Each mile averaged around 8:15)
1 mile cooldown (about 8:45 pace)

Not much for you speed demons out there, but decent for the fat man!
