Caught in the rain after my first mile. Poured hard, rain forest type of rain. I decided to keep going. Skipping runs like this will not help me get my treasured sub-20:00 5K.
Mile 1 - 8:47
Mile 2 - 9:10
Not sure after that.
Averaged 9:52, so my subsequent miles were very slow. Fine enough for me. This was intended to be LSD.
Stopped at seven miles, as my job today was to get in 55-65 minutes, and I was at 69:36.
I'm tired. I'll nap.
Slept an hour. For those of you keeping score, I won yesterday's Scrabble game by one point, delivered when I posted my last letter, a 'T'. I attached it to an 'I'. That got me four points (double word score). What did it though was that I received everyone else's remaining points from letters still sitting on their tray.
