Tonight, after a few days dropped from Tropical Storm Isaac, I ran my first official 5k. No stops! Time: 32:30. After yesterday’s mockery of a run, tonight my legs felt in good form and my breathing pretty steady. Still hotter than sunset on Mercury, but the breeze helped cool off the first half of the run.
I seem to be developing an issue along my lower, outer right leg. It tightens up until it’s too painful to run.
We rowed this morning. The shrinking days suck; not only because it’s a reminder of the doom of winter but also because we were launching with the faintest crack of light. The county “fixed” the boat ramp but didn’t pack it down. Pushing a motor chassis through sugar sand is not my idea of early morning fun. (Granted, neither is waking up at 5:30.) Plus they felt these invisible pot holes at the end; walking the boat in was dangerous stuff. However, the dolphins were happy this morning–either they were chasing fish or “frolicking.” 🙂
