Validated

Today we slowed things down a little -- we were scheduled for 20-25 minutes of walk/run. Rather than bother with having Wil come across the bridge to Bellevue, I picked him up downtown and we went to the gym there. (And, yes, the validation at the parking garage actually works...)

It was really hot in the gym, and we were somehow out of the path of any fans, so we were both drenched in sweat at the end of our runs. I ran at a gradually increasing pace for 25 minutes (6.o, then 6.2, then 6.4, and finally 6.5 mph) but, of course, my Nike+ sensor shows a widely varied pace. I suspect that the "slower" times would actually be faster in the real world because I've lengthened my stride. Or maybe I'm just imagining that.

Anyway, tomorrow is a day of rest before another walk/run session on Thursday. Then an "easy" walk run on Friday, and then rest on Saturday before the Jingle Bell Run on Sunday. Though I am dreading the crowds, I'm looking forward to the run itself. What a change that is!

PS: My bum is sore from the bike. That's funny.
