Distance: 4 mi.
I was scheduled to run 6 today but the combination of me running 16 this Sunday after taking a week off to let the eggplant heal, plus an odd set off little blunders including forgetting to change before I left for the trailhead (which made for some interesting front seat theatrics), forgetting to lock the truck and having to turn around (luckily I hadn’t gone far), forgetting to put bandaids on various owies, and so on… made me decide it might be a good idea to just relax and go easy. I haven’t been that disjointed in quite some time and I really have no idea why. Nothing was bothering me. Heck, it’s Friday fer pete’s sake! Sometimes you just have to roll with it. I didn’t try to do anything like intervals or maintaining a set pace… I just ran. It was actually kind of fun…! I played “annoying, happy jogger” and waved to everybody, stopped to pet a pooch and hummed my favorite songs pretty much the whole way. I liked it so much I might just make it a habit…!
