I'm going to work a holiday in a few days, so I took two half-days and got in some weekday runs. The first one felt pretty good. The second one was a real trudge until I got a text about a trivial work issue that pissed me off; after that, I was too busy stewing to notice the run until I was almost home. Stewing is always great for running.
The 5.33 was the best Thursday of the year and tied the best Thursday of 2016; it also broke the all-time record for February 9th and eliminated a shameful sub-10 cumulative mileage day.
The 4.43 was the best Friday for the year, broke the all-time record for February tenth, and upgraded a humiliating sub-5 cumulative mileage day to a shameful sub-10 cumulative mileage day. It also knocked out one of my three single-instance February days (not including the 29th); the next one is Monday.
My Avatar continued down Illinois 141, with a brief detour to explore the little village of New Haven.
On the headphones, I finished Life of Pi on Thursday and got rolling on a YA novel called Wonder on Friday.
