So, I did 10K after work today. 6 whole miles, and it hurt. Not quite sure why – well, other than not having done any real distance since the 7 with David a while ago.
It wasn’t a bad hurt, by any means. Just not comfortable like a 6 miler should be 4 weeks before a 12 mile race.
Can I confess something? Earlier I ragged on Nike+iPod for having a “too simple” interface, and a stat screen like a video game.
Well, I think I like that now.
Dunno why, but the “My Records” trophy case is especially appealing. I haven’t put anything meaningful up there yet, but still it’s kind of cool. Especially since there’s no real documentation about what it takes to put something up there. Kind of like figuring out a game without having to open the manual.
Anyway, 6.2 miles today on Jamestown. 10 minutes floating on my back looking up at the clouds and feeling the rollers coming in all the way from Africa. I got funny, funny looks from the folks taking a dive class, all suited up in full body wetsuits when I jumped in in my running shorts.
Good day counting calories today. I think I can drop 5 lbs by New Haven if I keep on top of things.
