this is my longest run yet (14.2 km/8.8 m) ... probably a bit longer than I should have gone. It was slower and harder than usual, but I guess since there's supposed to be a long slow run, it's ok that it was about 6 min longer at 13 k than last week's 13 k with Minium. or maybe because it was quite a bit colder (36°F/2°C when i went out, and not a whole lot warmer when i finished 116 min later.
but probably the peak of spring from a flowering tree and flower perspective. just incredible. I ran a loop and a bit through the jardin des plantes, another circuit plus some through Luxembourg Garden, plus the park along the left bank of the seine, on the river, and the garden next to Notre Dame. and the sky and the river were blue -- i may never see such a gorgeous spring day ever again, even if the temperature wasn't at all springlike.
but i think i'll give myself a few weeks at this distance before trying to up it some more!
wish i had pictures, but i have no cell phone and no camera. some year!
