|We went to the Sea Dogs game last night|
The sweating felt good, Bennie was reasonable, although a couple of times we were just getting going and he would bolt over to what to him was a GREAT sniff.
The bad parts was that it meant that I had to stop and start yet again. Stopping and starting ain't bad, but sometimes it is difficult to get a good "flow" going for your run.
In other words it was a typical Bennie run. Although we did a pretty good surge in when the truck was speed checking us...he said you are doing great -- 10 mph ;-). I wanted ask if he wanted to trade places at that point, but didn't. Probably, I should have been more of an anchor, but it felt good to stretch the legs out a little and for a change I didn't pay for it too badly.
Then when we got back up by the house, Mary was coming back down the road and turned around to go a little ways with us. Well it turned out to be the last mile and we got to gab about things, so it was good. However, I needed one more mile to get to 20 for the week, but Bennie's tongue was starting to drag on the road, so I shut it down.
The hard reset of the Garmin 310XT seems to have worked, no problems today. It seems about once every 4-6 months, it is something that I need to do with it. So when it starts acting wonky again, I will be more apt to do the reset.
This was my longest run in a while and I didn't want to push it any further. Maybe I will go out and do one just to get to that 20 mile mark later this afternoon, then again, it is in the 80's and I am feeling pretty good just sitting here relaxing with Bennie napping on my feet.
