Run for cover in the temple of love.
Fortunately for me, modern technology has provided a backlit reading device with which I can while the time until again I drowse and so my three a.m. alertness does not bother me. It helps to know I have absolutely nothing to do the next day. Nothing at all.
However - and this is a trick I have learned on my journeys to New York - I always fare better when I force myself to rise and take that run. It makes the rest of the day just that much easier. But I will need a nap later.
Distance: 5 miles
Avg Pace: 8.06
Route: Topsail Beach
DID YOU KNOW ..? You can program specific BPM into Spotify? Okay, maybe you did, I just figured that out. MMR says I was just over eight minutes, but the lady told me my split pace was 7:57 as I finished, so I will imagine that to be correct.
Running at 165 BPM, I need to find out if that is eight minutes on pavement. It's probably much faster.
Climate: sunny! breezy!
Intake: yogurt & granola
Running out into the morning sun, heading back into the wind. While they each slowed me down a bit, they also have their pleasures. Also, running in the morning means not having to dodge all the other beachgoers -- and they don't have to deal with ME.
Wore proper shoes. Feet feel great.
What's That Lyric?
