3 miles, 43:49 (14:36)

the joys of living in a wired world: i stopped after 2 miles to order hokas from running warehouse and then resumed run. uncle. sadly it didn’t make the knee feel better. but still.

secret to running on asphalt in trail shoes: stop at the end of each mile to let them hang out in a patch of dirt.

blah. beginning to have second thoughts about noon as the best time of day to run. or maybe i just need to become a 3k specialist.

probably last time ever on church loop. mo said cops were out patrolling on last loop. stupid rich people.

downside: knee still bumming.

upside: mesquite beans on the course.

life always has a way of balancing out.

in my defense, i had no idea it was neon shorts day.

fartlek friday in crazy heat. ok for 2 miles before the wheels fell off. why am i running with wheels, anyhow?

lots of time over 155, so maybe good 5k training. never threw up, so likely dogging it. ran with new piranhas, thinking maybe they will generate new knee cartilage. inconclusive results so far.

mostly, i wish i had neon shorts. life is a series of crashing disappointments.

i ran through a pokemon go obstacle course today. apparently whatever it is they were looking for was somewhere around the 2-mile point of my course, and so was i. odd to have  a bunch of people walking around like zombies staring at their phones. well, ok, that’s actually pretty normal.

easy day. knee is still pretty bad. curious to see if it feels better at faster pace. we’ll find out tomorrow …

14:30 is the new game. i won this round. knee is ok if i pretend it doesn’t hurt. huffamoose to the rescue. schedule change allows 2 p.m. run. definitely my sweet spot. too hot. this is doable if i pretend it can be done

sometimes running requires a lot of pretending.
