Why did I let this question hang in the air? It's not like the delay in addressing it makes for great comedic effect.

The Sage Rat Run was today, which I ran with the same friend. I ran in front of her for a lot of it today, first to be less creepy, and second, to try to motivate her a little. It didn't work. She usually settles into a nice rhythm, with her breathing evening out a couple miles in, but today she was fighting the whole way. She's had a cold, so I think that contributed. I haven't kept up on my running, but thankfully I was still in good enough shape for it to not be a strain. I actually feel pretty decent right now.

The run itself was the least impressive of the ones we've done. Almost entirely flat ground, and basically alongside the freeway. It's hard to feel like you're making progress when the terrain stays the same. Not a stimulating environment. Still, I'm glad we did another run together.

One of these days I should learn to swim. That would probably be more enjoyable than running during the summer months.

That bean burrito you had for lunch probably didn't help.

So, Charles. Does that mean you're be looking for a pool with a 15% grade sitting on a moving freight car? Even they often run alongside a freeway.

I would suggest swimming against a strong river, say like the Niagara River(just above the falls for extra incentive).

A bigger bean burrito may definitely help in that scenario.

Got tired of waiting for the sun and went for a three hour paddle yesterday. 3 hours is a bit too long for the first day out. Triceps and shoulders are quiet stiff today.

Of course, if you were a noisy stiff, you'd be a zombie.
