Day after hard run easy run which made easy pace faster but still feel easy and seemed to require less of a warm up. Trying to perfect the 5 mile loop course where I usually end up a little short and do a smaller loop inside the neighborhood. Exited Westlake at the north entrance and turned right onto Alderman, then right on Belcher, and right on Nebraska, making my way to the Pinellas Trail and then north until Crystal Beach Ave and back toward Alt 19. Made the mistake of trying to cross right there instead of going to the Alderman light. It didn't look too busy but it would never quite clear up enough, finally did the right think and went up to the light and pushed the button. Then it was a straight shot east on Alderman. Hit 5 miles with still a ways to go.
I will adjust this loop to be 5 miles and maybe not cross Alt 19.
Weather was nice.
I stayed on schedule timewise because I had to get back in time to drop Sophia off at school since I volunteered for drop off duty today.
