Running 34:29  3.9 mi (8:51 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 3
Had to do lab stuff today (boo...), which started with about 10 minutes of work than then a 3 hour incubation, so I decided to run in to lab and then continue on to do the Eliot-Weeks loop before coming back to spend the afternoon in the (blessedly air conditioned) lab. It was another hot day, but this time I was out with the sun and was once again moving slowly. I think the day might actually have been pleasant if you were sitting in the shade, but running in the sun was hot. I considered changing my route significantly to stay in the shade rather than cross over to the sunny side of the river. I ended up convincing myself that most of the other side of the river would be shady, and this worked until I was actually on the sunny side of the river. I stayed on this side from Eliot to JFK and then looked at the long unbroken sun side of the river and the shady Mem Drive side of the river and crossed at JFK. Presto started really, really dragging after we crossed at Eliot. He obviously had no idea what would posses someone to run in this weather. Anyway, it was so nice to be out rather than in lab. I think this is the first time I've run 2 days in a row since my knee started bothering me. It was fine for basically the entire time I was running and started twinging just at the end.
