Morning run with the slug club. Ernie was running 18 but that sounded a bit rich for my blood after an abbreviated week, so I met him at Waterman Dock, which is near the 3-mile marker. Left Waterman at 6, nice morning for a run. No snow/rain/sleet like yesterday, and it turned out to be great -- cloudy, about 40-45 the whole time, no wind. We were dead set on a comfortable pace and managed it for nearly the whole time, about the most consistent run I've had on that route. Miles were: 7:38, 7:24, 7:21, 7:49 (someone messed up the mile marker past Manchester when they repainted is the rumor, because the next one is always short), 7:10 (turned around at this point), 7:02, 7:26, 7:29, 7:10, 7:26, 7:06, 6:47. The 7:10 on the way back was inspired by two camels along the route, I think I got excited. One had two humps, the other had one. Too bad James wasn't there to run through their field and get chased. The last two were fast because I needed to get to the bathroom and was in a hurry. Conversational pace the whole time though, and there were a lot of other sluggos out on the road who met up at breakfast.
1:27 total, really a great Saturday morning run. No pain in the hammy, so I think I'm all clear. Back up to a more normal mileage next week and shooting for 15 next weekend.
