A run through the park and a stop at the Depot

Getting around
Today's run (street): 4.6 miles

I was feeling a lot better today and went out early to cover a little more distance than yesterday. I wasn't ready to take on seven miles, like I did last week, but I planned to break out of the confines of my neighborhood. After a loop around the local streets, I crossed through the middle school and made my way toward the adjacent business park.

I did my usual clockwise loop around the park and double-backed at the end to gain an extra half mile. I added more distance along a stretch that runs west of neighborhood #3 and finished up with a dash down the middle school parking lot. I haven't looked at the Garmin data to see how I paced, but I did throw in some fartleks throughout the run.

Later in the day I went out to take care of some errands and stopped into the Home Depot to buy a couple of small items. While I was there I became mesmerized by rack after rack of tools and I remembered that I needed a large pair of tongue and groove pliers. I felt extremely macho evaluating the selection and decided on a rugged Crescent 12" unit that I took home and fixed something on my to-do list.

I'll take the one in the middle
So, despite a bad start to the weekend, I managed a decent run today. And I got to play with a big wrench.

  1. At least a wrench in your plans didn't stop you from running. It could have screwed things up, but you nailed it. I'd write more, but I have to stop. It's Hammer time.

  2. I have a lot more on my to-do list, but I'm chiseling away at it. I'd better stop before I become unhinged.
