Running 2013: Week Ten
What a fantastic weekend for running. Saturday – first run of the year without a sweatshirt. Sunny and 60F:
That spike about halfway through? I slowed down to drop letters at the post office.
Sunday – more overcast, but pushing 70F! – first run of the year in shorts:
Really happy with the way this one turned out, with no miles above the nine-minute mark.
The no-extra-charge life lesson with today’s run came when the warm breeze from the southwest – which I ran against on the outbound leg, figuring I’d have it at my back for the home stretch – shifted just enough that I was running into it again during my last eastbound mile. Lesson: No matter how much route planning you do, you can’t keep the wind from changing direction.
So 69 days into the year, I’m actually more ahead of my mileage goal than I thought: I just realized that my YTD mileage as tracked by Turtle Sport is going to be just over 1.8 miles short, because my Garmin battery died less just over a mile into the March 1 In Like A Lion Run. Correct total for the year: 73.5 miles.
