A long, slow run that was actually slow, that is. My fellow transplanted Texan was back today & my other faster buddy is doing a local 5k today. Ms Texan is slower thsn me & needs to walk a lot due to her asthma.
She actually did end up finishing ahead of me, because a some point we were slow enough to catch up with the slowest person & I chose to stick with her because I just needed a really slow run. I could definitely have run faster & still been relaxed, but I just enjoy running with other people.
Next week my faster buddy should be back - maybe I'll be ready. Maybe.
Tried out my new lightweight jacket since it was cool & raining. It didn't bother me to run in - but didn't keep me completely dry, either. I didn't realize I was slightly wet until I got home, tho.
I think I have solved my bagel dilemma: I cannot usually bring myself to eat just half a bagel, but this week I had a bialy (which is sort of a cross between a bagel & a roll - but much thinner). Remember, it's all psychological - being able to have a whole bialyi instead of half a bagel just makes me feel like I'm getting more. Still a treat, tho.
Will run for bialyi & lox!
