I ran 6.2 miles through Bonaventure and Greenwich cemeteries on this beautiful, cool Sunday afternoon. As has been the case this past week, I was again a little stiff and clunky for the first few miles. By the time I began to loosen up and fall into my groove the burps and other noises from my stomach began to surface. With every belch I could taste yesterday’s leftover paella which I ate about thirty minutes before my run. Not a smart thing to have done.
All in all, though, it was a good run. My pace was a planned 7:50/mile.
Next Saturday, I’m doing the seacrest preservation whatchamacallit 10k. I’m excited about that race. That will be the last race I do before my trip to Tanzania. I hope to finish that 10k in forty minutes or less. We’ll see.
I’m not going to do any long runs again until I return from Tanzania. I do not want to risk any injuries. So, from now until my departure to Kilimanjaro six to seven mile runs will be the longest I’ll run. After I come back, you better hold onto your butts because I’m going after an ultra. I want to do a 50 miler this summer.
- 1 red cardinal (female)
- 1 mocking bird
- 1 pelican (with a white head – it was like a bald eagle pelican). Can you imagine if those two species bred? Oh boy.
- 1 flock of sparrows (not seagulls).
- 2 blue jays
- 1 dog
- 1 cat
What else? Hm.
Ok, I think that’s it for now.
Thanks for stopping by.
All the best to you and yours.
