It's Great To Be 40!

My birthday morning run went super. I really don't feel any different and it was just another great Monday morning run. My legs felt fresh from the easy weekend of running and extra time off last week. This week to come will be a difficult one and rest will be key.
My lovely wife and I made our way to Tofte to eat at the Coho Cafe and found it closed for a couple of days for remodeling or something? We just jumped over to the Grille at Bluefin and had a wonderful lunch and dessert and made our way back to Duluth while hitting some campgrounds and scouting out our spots for the summer season. I can't wait for those weekends. The beauty of camping on the North Shore is the Superior Hiking Trail is literally steps from the camping sites. I will be a great summer!

Totals: 1:00:40 8 miles

This morning I ran out west on Skyline and proceeded to warm up and warm down for thirty minutes along with a middle section of 20 X 20 seconds at sub-5K pace. Many of them were at 4:50 pace and they felt wonderful. It is beginning to feel like I am getting a little snap back in the legs. Lets hope.
I love this time of year. The sunrise over Lake Superior this morning was one for the record books. Hard to believe this is right out my front door. Life is grand.

Total: 1:19:00 11.4 miles
20 X 20 seconds repeats
30 min warm up/down

Thanks Steve.
Julie, I have lived life with that mindset. It's just a number. In the end, we will eventually all loose but I will fight it to the end!
