Time goes, you say? Ah no! Alas, Time stays, we go. ~Henry Austin Dobson
Today's run: 2 miles
Week total to date: 8 miles
Month total to date: 8 miles
Lent total to date: 8 miles
Today, I decided to do a time trial to see where I was at. Looking back, I should have gone to NMU and used the track or something, but I used my usual 2 mile out-and-back instead. The issues: 1. a significant hill at the very beginning/end of the route; 2. 4 total street crossings, and a mouth-breathing cretin local population who wouldn't know what a crosswalk was if it was beat in to them. But, rants aside--the clock is the clock, and after the 2 miles, the clock read 20:55. Now, I'm not sure which angle to take when looking at this. On one hand, I can see the Lindsey who ran in the Big North Conference finals her senior year pointing and laughing at this. On the other hand, this re-incarnation of Lindsey-as-a-runner is in her infancy, and hasn't been doing this long. So, shame? Pride? Indifference? Perhaps, I'll look at this as a starting point. I'll log some more miles, and in a week or two I'll do it again and see if I can't shave some time off.
