I just ran my fastest 5k since October.
25'10, I'm quite pleased with that.
I woke up at 0230 and could not get back to sleep, by 0530 I gave up and went out for a run instead.
I covered almost 9 miles in 90 minutes, in my longest post-injury run. I might try to make it 10 miles in 100 minutes next week.
While out running I saw four herons, a herd of deer, and one cyclist.
I knew I could not improve on yesterday's 5k time, so today I went for distance - just about #running a sub-hour 10k.
A few month back, on another Saturday morning, I was running to a parkrun, down some twisty country roads.
I turned one bend to find an entire herd of deer blocking half the road.
I did not run past them, for I have a fear of spooking any animal bigger than me, and that goes double for a flock of them.
Later that same day someone completed a marathon in under two hours, and I was given my hashing name.
I've just heard that the #parkrun new year double is a thing of the past.
It is sad that I won't get to run another double, but I'm quite glad I'll now have no reason to drive on New Years day, and by extension stay sober on New Years Eve.
Thanks to mastodon I discovered #slowly, and thanks to slowly I've spent my Sunday afternoon writing 'letters' to strangers in Turkey, Mexico and Russia.
One of my colleague is developing a parental control system using a #mitm attack.
I suggested he brand it as "mam-in-the-middle"
