You'd think after all the weekend activity I'd sleep really well, but not. Still, I was out the door at 5:30 for a short run. "Short run" of course is relative. A few months ago this would have been a major effort. But today, 5K in 41 minutes, with an average heart rate of 118 bpm seemed nice and easy. I'm still getting used to running in the morning with warm weather.
I was a little creaky at first, and felt very heavy. My stride didn't feel really smooth till the 3.5 or 4 K mark. Mostly I kept a steady pace and my heart rate kept dropping as I warmed up more.
