Yesterday evening when my wife, tot, and I stepped out to grab a slice of pizza nearby, we ran into Mr. V picking up gelato for his girlfriend. He seemed embarrassed as it appears he is a super healthy eater... Yea don't stay and watch what I order please! At least now my wife knows who mysterious Mr. V is. We bid adieu until 5am.
Speaking of eating, I am starting to use My Fitness Pal again to try to get back into game shape and fix up my eating a bit.
6 mile recovery run this morning at a few minutes slower than pace. First people I saw were V and his girlfriend. Then I didn't see anyone for like 3 miles. The weather was more ominous than inclement. 66, foggy, misty, and an occasional sprinkle. The lake looked like scene from a Stephen King movie.
Eventually I started seeing my morning street team, my wave/nod success rate was pretty amazing today, probably like 80%, good Monday start. Observation of the run, typically there are more women than men running in bad or threat of bad weather, but that trend went out the window today. Odd, but quick wave lady and miss constant were both out so thank you for not letting me down!
Shout out today goes not to a runner, but perhaps the most frequent user of the path. A middle age lady that I am guessing is walking to work every morning, see her bag lunch on her hand every morning. She was out all winter and spring. Not sure if this was a health or economic issue. Although today I saw her on a bike and her face just looked a little more relieved. I hope things are on the upswing for her.
The last mile or so of my jog I put a little extra umf into my run/jog. I looked back and apparently another runner was catching up and I thought... This probably looks like the set up for a challenge or something. Sigh, do I slow down and let her pass me or just do the run I wanted to do. I'm only going maybe up to an 8 minute mile so it won't look that bad. I get near the end of the path and the runner had sped up as well to not lag behind, I imagine she was determined to get by me and she would have today easy. I went off the path and up home, and she looped back and stayed on the path.
