It was also nice to get a good effort in right before meeting friends for our weekly dinner. The free chips 'n' salsa at El Nopal taste amazing after a hard run. (Especially after a little added salt... yummm!)
I jogged my usual warm-up and then ran 6 x Top Notch repeats. They didn't feel as good as last week's hills, but it was still a better workout than I expected for the week after my peak run. I think the cool air helps a lot.
After the run, I took a quick hot shower to warm up and then met everyone for dinner. We kept the meal short too because Game 1 of the World Series started just after 7:00!!!
The Coppins were nice enough to host a viewing again and the Cardinals took Game 1 to start the Series off on the right foot!
One down... three to go!
