Daffodils

The daffodils made me do it! Really, the combination of flowers galore (daffodils, California poppies, and purply blooming trees) and blue skies sang to me and told me do some speed play--otherwise known as fartleks.

And, yes, fartleks is the weirdest word EVER. Fartleks give you the permission to bust out some speed without being a slave to the track or your watch. It's fun because you choose when to start and stop; you can sprint up to a big tree or down past a stop sign or whatever else strikes your fancy!
