Man, you get out to run at 4:30pm, and next thing you know, BAM.. darkness! Getting dark at 5:00pm sucks!
I did a 6 mile run, and saw Shoreturtle pass by, driving off to some adventure. It's amazing how many people you recognize when you are out running on the streets.
The legs, a bit sore at the start, quickly woke up, and I felt really good throughout the run.
I had one scary moment, when running, these damn people coming out of their developments, they just don't stop at the stop signs. They go right thru them, rolling right up to the main road, into the cross walk, not paying any attention to myself, just wanting to make the right turn quickly to beat traffic. Well, I gave this guy an earful. I pointed out to him where the stop sign was, and explained to him that is where he is to stop. This type of situation happens all to frequently for my liking. People just need to slow down, and take a second. I know, since I have had kids, when I leave our neighborhood, I drive a little slower, and take the extra precaution, because kids don't look where they are going. Worst are the kids, walking or biking, either text messaging, or listening to their Ipod. They don't look or pay attention to their surroundings.
OK, off my soapbox, the only other situation I had, that could have ended badly was when I hit a rut in the grass, where I was running and rolled my right ankle a bit. When I did it, I thought the worse, but I was OK, and continued on. I had no swelling when I check it out. It was fine this morning, so I dodged another bullet.
Today is my last Wednesday run, in the training plan. Hopefully I can get the 8 miles in before the rain.
