Seebo's Run

A running commentary on my training and whatever else emerges from that.

Shouldn't Have

worn my watch this morning. Thought I was going at a descent clip this morning. Then I timed my MLK miles and saw that I was taking them at an 8:30 clip. Not that it matters a rat's posterior, but I guess it does. I'd like to think I was going faster.

My stops and starts continue. I've been writing about them for so long now. Busy weekend and rain laid me off for three days after doing 6 on Friday. I set the alarm for 5:30, didn't get out of bed till 6:15, and didn't get out of the house until 7:15. This early sluggishness is a bad habit, but like many they are hard to break.

Run was drizzly but good. Took it out to the Strawberry Mansion Bridge and back through Fairmount Park. One reinforcer of getting out later is that I've now worked the Horticultural Center into my regular route. About a half mile of no traffic and blooming purple bushes, and I can reach over the fence and grab some zen out of the Japanese Garden.

And the amusing thing is that my watch is at home so I can't even record the time. Gmap calls it 11 miles.
