Smoky


Some - some serious residual soreness from the long run this weekend. Felt good to let the legs work again a little bit. There's still some soreness, but not as bad. Sure am glad that I had an indoor workout planned today, intervals on the treadmill after a gym workout. It's been really smoky here in Reno because of some Northern California fires. Here's a view down our cul-de-sac - Doesn't really do it justice, though. I can actually see particles hanging in the air between my driveway and the corner of the street. The worst was on the way to work yesterday - I usually have a nice view up to Mt. Rose, towering over Reno. It was a clear day, but because of the smoke, I could barely make out the mountain. Yuk. Hope that clears up a bit before this weekend...

I did a 3 x 5 minute set of intervals, with a warm up and cool down. I feel like I should be doing one more set almost each time I do the speedwork, but can't quite push myself to it. I suppose it'll come, though. Not that worried about the intervals right now, mostly building distance for my next race. I'll be more concerned about them when I'm back on a specific program for a fall marathon.


(Wish the scales were individually customizable; that pace line doesn't look very impressive when the pace goes all the way up to 1:10:00 per mile...)

Yeah, that smoke is pretty gross. I wish it would blow out soon- this is wrecking havoc on my lungs and sinuses, and it's hard enough to get in a good run as it is...

I really liked how you framed your photo, with the greenery on the right to contrast to the hazy background and missing mountains~
