I skipped running Monday and Tuesday and went out today. I dilly-dallied for two hours before finally stepping outside into the cloudy conditions and high 60s temps. I had been by the Westerly HS yesterday to see about doing speed work on their track but it was locked up tighter than my running shoes around my ankles.
So I opted today for hill work and some tempo pace on the downhills. The colony has a grid of roads that have a perimeter total of 1.9 miles so I went around twice. Not too many folks were outside. Rain started to sprinkle down on me about a half mile out. It was light enough to not be a factor. I actually enjoyed it.
What was most alarming (or not) was that I was out there running and pulled my wrist up to look at the time and realized I was not wearing a watch. In fact, I haven't worn a watch in two days. I must be on vacation.
We had four glorious beach days from Saturday to Tuesday but today was rainy and it is forecast to continue through Sunday. This always happens when I come north of the Jeanne line. A stupid storm front stalls over New England and I have to read blogs/newspapers/magazines/books, go to movies, nap, do Sudoku puzzles and visit other vacationers and locals socked in by the weather. I can't even do the tons of yard work here at the family estate in this rain. (Well I suppose I could but that's not why I'm here).
