Week 3, Day 2, v2: F is for Fartlek

I had the most amazing run this morning. Well, once I got out of bed. Bob the clock beeped at me for a full half hour before I could drag myself outside. Since I had to stop at the bank during my run, and it's not on the usual 4 mile route, I decided to mix things up and just do a "wherever your feel like it" run, aiming to get to the bank with a half-mile or so left to get me home. And since I was doing that, I thought it would be a good day to do a little speed play as well. I had fun giving myself different goals, run faster for a half mile, or to the next tree, or whatever. I also learned that if I run a little faster, I feel less like stopping. What a revelation. 4 miles, 48:01.07.
