Day 9: Neighborhood Night Tour

Distance11.40 mi
Duration 01:49:24
Pace9:35 min/mi

My knee was bothering me Sunday. I didn’t have much get up and go Monday morning. So, with weather conditions threatening to get ugly over night and through-out Tuesday, I was faced with a choice. I could call in a minimum for the whole week and just try to hit my 18 miles later, or I can get something done before the ugliness blew in.

I decided to bundle up and strike out into the night through the neighborhood. Kept my phone warm between layers and it lasted pretty well. I would have liked to get another 0.6 miles out of it before it died, but I took it’s surrender as a sign to call it myself. Nearly 12 miles today. With the non-run load I have coming later in the week, that’s a welcome pile of miles to get out of the way.
