A good Run

Tonight there is a possibility of showers and since I didn't want to run in the rain, I decided on a lunchtime run. 

Today's goal: Upping my routine runs to 4 miles. 

Using Map My Run, I roughed out a 4 mile route from the office and took off. Since this was at almost noon on a hot day (85 F) and an increase in distance, I just started out light.  About 1/4 of the way through I took a GU and sped up a bit.  My right calf was tight and I took a short walk break.  The back half was against the wind and up hill so it was slow going.  The last mile or so I started picking it up.  Ending time: 46:08.  I finished strong and headed to Subway for some lunch. When I sat down to map it out, it came to a bit over 4.1 miles.

Goal achieved!
