Walk 13: Lucky, with no rain

The last few days has seen a shift in the weather, from delightfully warm and sunny to torrential rains and windy. Today saw a bit of a break from the rain after morning showers, so I donned my long-sleeve running shirt and headed out.

Given that it’s been a week since the last walk/run, I was expecting to be a bit slower–and I was, but only by a little (two seconds, to be exact).

The smoke haze was gone, and it was cooler, though it didn’t actually feel cool, even with a fairly strong breeze blowing (thanks to the long sleeve shirt, a rare case of me not overdressing). There were more people out than expected, perhaps because it was the first real break in the weather over the last few days, but not an issue in any way.

I felt a bit sluggish at the start of the run back but picked up momentum and saw a pace of 5:37/km on the second km, which is pretty zippy these days.

The area where the river mediation is being done is still roped off, but the workers were absent today, so I didn’t have to dodge any heavy machinery. Always a plus.

Overall it felt good to get out again and I am hoping to go 2/2 tomorrow.
