What I am thinking about this morning?
I have a bunch of errands to run in Augusta today, so I will be running down there for a change. I would prefer my Cony 10K course, but school is in session, so I will most likely end up doing the rail trail. It will be a nice change of pace and a little longer than I have been doing for my Tuesday runs.
Usually, Tuesdays have been for faster sessions, but for now, I need to focus more on establishing a good base and worry about the faster stuff down the road. So, something between a 9:30 and 10:00 pace would be nice.
What did I do?
I ended up doing the Rail Trail, Capitol Park, and a quick bit down Water St. Surprisingly, the Rail Trail wasn’t that busy for as nice a day as it is/was. This kind of weather almost halfway through October is crazy. Clear sky, 74 °F, with a feel like temp of 74 °F, humidity 75%, wind mostly calm from the North.
Actually, it was too warm, now that I have acclimated to cooler weather, so I was happy with a very nice 6.0 miles. Crazy weather — that is all I can say.
There were people out walking, but I only saw one other runner at the time I ran. However, up in Capitol Park (after a green box visit), there was some kind of event going on, so I went down the center path instead of the outside like I had planned. Not that it made all that much difference to anything, plus I did the Park clockwise, another minor change.
The Karhu Ikoni 2020 did great, and my feet felt fine the entire run, which is all I care about.
It wasn’t one of those great runs that everyone seems to write about, instead, it was the run that I needed to do. An easy one where I got in the miles I wanted at a pace that felt good.
