It’s very cool when timing seems to be on your side and you can quickly see that you’re doing exactly what you should be, at the right time, in the right way.
Although the weather was perfectly conducive to local travel on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, it finally got cold and slick today. With a few of us traveling locally over the holiday weekend, it was comforting that no one had to risk a slippery drive while visiting friends and family. This morning, however, produced a black ice wonderland. As I headed out to run, I realized I was going to have to watch my footing. Some sections of the roads had almost no traction. The good timing about this is that I still have no business going fast or far, since it’s only my second run post-surgery. So the conditions did their part to ensure I kept a slow, steady, stay-on-my-feet pace. And had the road conditions considered providing any wiggle room, my running watch sealed the deal…..
|My watch has seen better days|
Yep it's true, I did grab my watch this morning to see where my pace is right now. And it immediately snapped into 3 pieces. I just wanted to assess a baseline. No really…. OK, fine - don’t believe me. The "time" part of the watch still works (i.e. chrono), so of course I could have carried my watch in my pocket. Instead, I decided to take it as a sign. I left for my run, sans watch and sans any time concerns.
4 miles at a pace that worked for me versus against me - YEAH! Now, where did I leave that duct tape…..
