It is a near-miracle that the weather has so dramatically changed - it was raining pretty heavily when I headed out mid-afternoon (after marathon novel-revision session that basically ended when I truly could go no further), but the rain tailed off by about twenty minutes in, and it was in the low sixties! Amazing.
I don't know
whether it was residual fatigue from a week of bad/not enough sleep and
demanding work, sore back or just regular human laziness, but I couldn't
persuade myself to step up the pace and get myself over the border into
zone 2, so I'm not sure about the total training benefits, but it was
good-quality time on feet anyway, and quite enjoyable. This is the run I
should have done yesterday, but I was so tired and so busy with
miscellaneous errands on top of work stuff that it wasn't feasible to
try for it.
I will have to get up very early if I want
to go to double spin tomorrow morning, as I need to have done at least 2
hours of work on the novel revision beforehand...
