So with the temperatures yesterday only in the high 70s, there was no reason not to run other than laziness! So on went the running shoes and off I went. I spent half of the run trying to decide whether  I should just turn my four-mile run into a three-mile run or at least not run up the hill at Pancoast! I did neither once I was over the hump at 2 miles and was heading down Pancoast, I was able to tell myself, 2.5 down 1.5 to go, and then 3  down 1 to go, etc and I finally made it all  the way to the end, all 4 miles of it in the record shattering time (can you read the sarcasm in the words?) of 45:25 – oh boy! The splits 1 – 10:21 2- 11:43 uphill 3 – 11:07 downhill 4 12:14 ugh!! Hey what can I say I’m old and it’s my first run since July 28!! Let’s hope that it gets better.
