Time: about half an hour, but I’m not sure.

Distance: haven’t got a clue.

Average pace: your guess is as good as mine.


Another freezing morning and another interesting and somewhat painful run.

Today’s run went surprisingly well all things considered; my legs were extremely stiff from the run I did yesterday, I got lost, and I forgot to start the timer on my watch. I should probably give some explanations (excuses) here. Having stiff legs today was unavoidable seeing as yesterday was my first run in a while; they were bound to be. The fact that I got lost running around a part of Cambridge that I have lived in for over three years now is just depressing, and that’s before I mention that I had a GPS device on my wrist at the time. Oh, the shame! Forgetting to start the timer on the watch can only be described as a rookie mistake, but these sorts of things happen to us all from time to time. At least I hope they do.

Physically, I felt much the same as I did yesterday, but with the pleasure of having to do it all with stiff legs this time. Again I ran out of steam half way through. I seem to lose concentration at about this point and it all falls apart. Actually losing concentration is probably not the bast way of describing it; it would be more accurate to say that all my concentration becomes focused, like a laser beam, on both the pain I’m in and the partial state of suffocation I have entered. So the concentration levels are as high as they ever are, just not where I would like them to be. So there’s one thing I need to work on.

You might have noticed by now that the map embedded above is actually the same one as yesterday. This is due to my getting so lost that I couldn’t possibly map the route I took today. I was all over the place. I’m still not sure how I got home.
