Late Night Meaningless Post

All things considered, I’d rather be living the life of leisure I know I’ve always wanted to grow accustomed to. Unfortunately it means winning the lottery and that just doesn’t seem to be happening.

Today’s Run

Not too bad considering I hadn’t run since Wednesday, and that I was ill through most of the week. Feeling better today. And the run was good.

Running Update

So, I did manage a couple of morning runs this past week. Unfortunately, after that I was hit with a stomach bug. I figure it was either the Tomato Basil Bisque soup I had at work, or it was a mild reaction to the flu shot I had on Monday. In either case it waylaid my running for a few days. I last ran on Wednesday the 24th. The plan this morning is to go for a simple run and then take Tina out for breakfast.

Anyway, here are the maps and stats for the last two runs:

Today’s Phenominal Run

I am not sure how this happened. I certainly had no intent on pushing myself hard. Indeed, my heart rate shows I clearly did not push myself much beyond my normal effort. So, color me surprised that I set all sorts of new records. Enough of words, here are the pictures:

Infamous Run of 10/20/2018!
As you can see, my first three miles were of normal pace. However, after that all sorts of increased speed without increased effort occurred. I’m surprised myself.
As you can see, the majority of my run stayed within the Aerobic zone. So, obviously my body was not being pushed beyond any normal limits.

Here, now, are my new personal records:

I know the route stated nine records, but one is just a repeat calories record and I didn’t feel the need to have it posted here.

Past Runs

I have been remiss in posting my runs. Here are three from earlier this week.


I’m not crying

You’re crying.

I’m watching the pensive scene from Deathly Hallows 2.


I’m not crying. You’re crying.

Pre Run Post

Checked the weather – no rain in the forecast. I’ve had a cup of coffee, so I am awake. I’ve read my horoscopes and they have indicated no danger so it’s safe to step outside. Yup, going for a run. You all behave while I’m out there pounding the pavement and dirt.

After the run I am slated to make breakfast for Tine. Yes, yes. I know. I’m spoiling her. It’s the only way I can ensure that she spoils me in return. It’s mutual spoilage.

Okay, that didn’t sound right. But trust me, our relationship works.

Change of Season, Change of Scenery

I changed up my Blog’s theme and color. More fall-like. Hope it is easy on your eyes.
