Out of practice

Tonight I ran my first run in 11 weeks.  The running part was glorious.  Everything around it was a little out of sorts.

  1. I couldn't find my gloves.  They are completely gone.
  2. I overdressed, which I discovered when I wasn't cold as I stood outside waiting for my watch to
  3. Find the satellites and
  4. Find my heart rate.
  5. Forgot to turn on the alert tones on the watch, so no pleasant beeping.
  6. Discovered I don't like running on the darkened bike path, even with my headlamp, it just felt a little too alone.
Looking back at my Zone two speeds (peak for 5 minutes), I slowed down quite a bit in December when I wasn't training for a race, and I was getting down on the shin.  Tonight I was right back in it with a pace just north of 8 min miles.

But most importantly, my shin felt great.  No pain whatsoever.  Time to start signing up for road races again.
