Half-Marathon Training – Week 4

Smoke from the Rim Fire is finally almost all gone and the weather is back down to the 80’s, so it was a good week for training. And thank goodness for my runs. With another hectic week at work and at home, my short little runs were my safe havens. My longest run this week was a 4 mile one, which I did in less than 43 minutes around Virginia Lake. I had forgotten about this little lake near Lakeside Drive, but I’m glad I went there this week: a loop around the lake is about one mile long and the repetition is sort of a meditation, especially with the sound of the water and the geese. Amazing how exercise and nature can change my mood in a heartbeat.
