3.40 miles in 31:56

this morning's run was my first intentionally lazy-paced run in ages. i'm always pushing it, never really recovering. i decided to change that.

i left the house a few minutes after 6:00 and headed west on manor street. as i rounded the corner onto lawrence, i decided to entertain myself (and you i hope) a little by running the word slow. i calculated how far north on lawrence i needed to go to make sure i could run the curves of the "s" properly when i got to it and then did it slowly. i'm pleased with the results. i ran a nice relaxed 9:22 pace and spelled slow correctly with my garmin. what could be better than that for recovery?

you'll have to look at the garmin map to see my handiwork.
