Just Keep Running

Catch Up

I’ve been a bit delinquant in posting my Incremental Marathon and La Tour de Rook legs. Without further todo –

Incremental Marathon

And this the day after I had a colonoscopy.

Update: I forgot to mention I also ran in the rain. I love running in the rain.

Le Tour de Rook/ Incremental Marathon

I did two workouts today. My first was a bike ride.

The second was a run.

Tour De Rook 2020

The second leg of the year.

I decided to cross the St. Louis River into Superior. It’s a tougher ride over to Wisconsin than back. It’s a long uphill pedal to the east.

The Incremental Marathon

So, after yesterday’s adventure in bicycling, today I decided to go for a run. I did 45 minutes. After that, I did a little short of 4 minutes cool down walk. The maps are below.

Here goes an attempt to share with my blog.

Well, it didn’t actually work out. Runkeeper could not share the map. So it’s back to saving the picture into a file to upload to here at a later date.

Okay, maybe running over 7 miles yesterday wasn’t the best thought-out idea. My body certainly is giving me a piece of its mind. And it’s using four-letter words I’ve never heard before. Rather insulting, to say the least.

I Laugh At The Face Of Death

So, in my effort to reduce stress in this Unique Time I tempted fate and went for a run. 6.27 miles in 1 hour 16 minutes and 53 seconds. Oh, and I also ran yesterday morning. Below are screenshots of the stats, etc.

And yes, I did come across the occasional human besides myself laughing at death. We engaged in proper social distancing protocols. Except for yesterday. I came across 4 deer as I crossed the tracks behind the Minit Mark gas station on Grand Ave. They just stood there looking at me. They didn’t raise their tails in alarm or move out of the way. I had to run around them! They made no effort at proper social distancing protocols. None-the-less, I was blown away by passing within 3 feet of wild deer. Way cool.
