Back on track

After a somewhat lazy training week last week (all I did was a 5k run!), I decided to create some time in my busy schedule and force myself to get out there and train for a bit. Just with today's 10k, I am already at twice the mileage of last week :)

The weather report said scattered showers and the road was wet under an overcast sky when I left. However, I didn't get wet and even got some sunshine. In fact, by the time I was done, the sun was out in full force!
The run itself was pretty uninspiring. I wanted to log a few miles and hoped I could do a tempo run, however the legs didn't have it in them this morning. I still managed a respectable 48m for a 10k run. Not wanting to deal with mud and puddles, I went to the Palladium Auto Park, which is an almost perfect 1k loop with a generous sidewalk. Nobody's ever walking there either so I usually get the whole thing to myself. There were a few car shoppers out today, so the economy must be doing better.
The laps were a bit uneven but it felt good to get out there and move a bit. My second split is faster by 37 seconds. I think that's a good thing :)

In the mix today were the awesome Lost Fingers with their Rendez-Vous Rose.


  1. Good job getting out there. Sounds like a perfect day for a run. Great location, too.

    Nice splits.

  2. Ha, never thought to run in an autopark. Good thinking!
