San Anselmo. One of the stranger workouts I've ever done. Local parks were all closed (high fire danger due to high winds, though it wasn't windy at all right here), but it was a lovely day, I hadn't run yesterday, but I didn't want to run on pavement, so decided to try running on the dirt of my side yard. That area is roughly 40' by 20'; my estimate is that a lap is about 1/50 of a mile. But the Garmin was very confused by me running around in tight circles (did some figure 8's to change directions, and later in the run made some forays around the front lawn) and reported less than half the actual distance. Three times I went out in the street and ran a tenth of a mile E and then ran back. The Garmin seemed OK on those parts, and I averaged less than 10 mins/mile. Quite sure that my pace didn't differ when I was in the yard, so this was easily a 4 mile run. Actually seemed like a pretty good workout. Wouldn't want to have to do it again for many months, though.

Cool down, again in the yard.
Good thing I bought new Speedcrosses a couple of days ago: noticed that the laces on my current ones have frayed in one spot, and I expect that the lace will break quite soon, and while I love the convenience of their no-tie lace system, replacing a lace is quite a chore, so it's pretty much the end-of-life for this pair.
Red flag warning (high winds anticipated) had the parks closed, or I might have gone out for some mapping at Bon Tempe.

Phoenix Lake. Second bridge run. Chilly morning, wore long sleeve shirt and O=pants for the first time in a long time, but even though it was even foggier at the lake than in town, regretted the clothing choice because I got to hot.
Finally ran one of these truly as easy distance.
We had to wait 15 minutes for a parking spot. Ugh.
Having run in terrain at Bon Tempe yesterday, I would have taken today off, but there's a red flag warning starting tomorrow, and all the parks are going to be closed tomorrow and the next day, so figured I'd better get something in today.

Bon Tempe. Test running some places to see if they'd make good legs.

Walked for a while before starting up the Garmin again. Went to a few places I'd never been to before.
In the afternoon, walked to the San Anselmo Town Hall to drop off our ballots. Then stopped for the first time at the running store there. They had a pair of Salomon Speedcross 4's in my size, and the guy (Jorge) said he'd give them to me for $99 instead of the list $130, so I took him, since my current ones are probably over 500 miles by now (which will become clearer once I catch up with all my log entries).
