I was thinking that no way would I be able to go out and grind otu 5 campus laps *again,* but I forgot about theWind Factor and the OUtta SHape factor.
First of all, there was a tad less wind, so that I didn’t have to fight as hard. Secondly, when I’m out of shape, then improvement comes quickly. (The NY Times did a story on research showing that some people just “get in shape” faster than others, and it resonates with my experience. ) Thirdly, I got out 5 minutes earlier than yesterday so I was already “ahead.” So! 35.5 miles on the day, and averaging about 12 mph! (Yes. I’m still out of shape. Oh, and I’m on the Xtra, and yes, I still have to do the commute part with those silly stop signs, etc. It’s probably the equivalent of 15 mph on the Trek.)
Tmorrow is supposed to be “raw.” Friday, “chilly.” Snork. In the 40’s isn’t chilly if I remember to dress for it, so I’m thinking Metric (no work).
