Distance: 5 miles, Time: 49:38, Pace: 9:56, Elevation Gain: 119
Weather was decent—42 at the start, overcast, little wind, 45 at the end
Long tights, tank with black jacket were good choices. Chilly when starting but got comfortable within a quarter mile. Blue shoes.
One crumpet, one cup of coffee for breakfast. Left at 9:30. Not a bad run. Normal huffy puffy at first and felt good at about one mile. At about mile two, felt a tiny twinge on outside of right knee and a wee bit of twinge in right hip. No big deal, though decided to do 5 miles instead of 6 because of it. Didn’t get worse during run. Could have kept going under other circumstances, namely no paranoia about right leg twinginess before half marathon on Saturday and general wanting to taper this week.
Down Bardstown Road and Baxter Ave past Feeders and looped around Main St by Home of the Innocents, then back up the way I came til Cherokee. Only hill was way back on Baxter. A lot of these sidewalks are in such sore shape, I could be trail running. That and the traffic makes me love running in the park even more *shakes fist at hills*. Listened to acoustic Eluveitie album. I think I could listen to Brictom all day long. Next run I will probably get back to their usual Death Folk Metal.Eluveitie – Brictom from NORT85 on Vimeo.
