a perfect -- tasty -- PSYCHEDELIC -- PM run. I love autumn and Seattle usually has a pretty blah one, but today was sunny and chilly and fine, and the afternoon bit like a perfect Honey Crisp apple. Had some tightness in the right Achilles to start out, stretched at the light and took it easy on the first mi, then settled into a nice loping stride, not straining but moving along at a pretty good clip, sevens or maybe just a skoche faster. Kept it up without undue effort until the theater, at which point, a shoelace infarction. I really like the Nimbus 8s, but for some reason the laces don't stay tied. A double knot later I was more or less home.
Had a look at last Sunday's run on the Garmin: turns out there was 4000ft climb between miles 1 and 14, which probably contributed to my crash. Next week back up above 50, but I may distribute the miles more evenly and add a day depending on how much work I can get done tonight. And we're going on the flats -- Alaskan all the way, baby.
