Today on my run I struck out on my original running route, which I have not done in months. I discovered my original run was about 2.4 miles. I went to the park, looking for baby ducks. Apparently baby ducks sleep much later than adult humans. I saw lots of ducks, and a night heron, and a robin, but no baby ducks. I didin't play any music on the first half of my run, because the battery in my player was low and I wanted to have it if/when the going got tough. I just focused on the sound & rhythm of my breathing, the sound of my footfalls, how hard my feet were striking, how my arms were swining, etc. Then when I headed for home I turned the music on. My calculations were a little off for the turn around point and I came in at 2.92 miles. All in all a decent run.
