Monday run

in three segments.

Part I: Over to park, then south along the main loop. Leg muscles all rather stiff and tired; couldn't seem to warm up. (This morning's workout, Saturday's bike ride or some combination thereof?) Decided to do middle loop only; stopped at Boathouse to use bathroom and accidentally stopped watch also.

Part II: Miraculously, legs felt great when I started up again! Reminder: sometimes it takes as long as thirty-five minutes to get going properly, don't be alarmed. Ran back uptown and over the 102nd St. transverse en route to LBS to pick up bike.

Part III: Bike has not yet received tuneup. Will get it Wednesday instead. Meanwhile, no bike ride tomorrow am--which means I might be able to squeeze in a short technique swim during midday lane swim hours tomorrow, if I get up early to do class prep. Ran the rest of the way home from the store.

6.78 miles total, 70:07 total run time (10:something pace, faster for second leg than for others). Second half super-enjoyable, first half not so much...

End on a high note! (Much better than the other way around.)

Sounds like a good run--I hope you got the lovely semi-warmish wintry weather we had on the weekend. There's nothing quite like running home from running an errand!

The weather--and listening over and over to side two of Abbey Road--allowed me to have a truly glorious run (five miles, longer than I usually bother with in winter) on Sunday, one of those runs that reminds you why you do this in the first place.
