A Sunday morning run

Made it out to run this morning, just from home, along the canal. Originally, I was going to head south, hadn't been that way for a long time. But then decided I'd go north, as there's a nice park at Chandler/Cooper, with fountains and restrooms.

The only thing about this was that I had to run right past the scene of my injury. First the bench where I saw my ankle swell...then the button I pressed and the sidewalk I slid off. Needless to say, I didn't push the button today. I waited for a car to pass, then just ran across when it was clear.

I got my Garmin all charged last night, but when I was checking to make sure it worked (seeing my last run on 8/16 of .59 miles was sobering), I somehow left it on in training mode and it was dead again this morning. So I charged it a little, and went out a little later than I originally planned.

There were tons of people out...but the weather was nearly picture perfect. Temp around 65-70F, just a few high clouds. I was surprised how thirsty I was. I did take my water belt, and drank almost a whole bottle of water, and even started on some Gatorade.

My official stats are Here. Nothing earth-shattering, but I was a little surprised how fast I was able to sprint at the end.

A very interesting CBS Sunday Morning today. The whole show is focusing on obesity.

Edited to add:
