Although I marked this as an easy run, my pace was too slow. I think I could have run a little faster, but I just didn't want to. My ankle felt fine. I was just sluggish.
My run kept being interrupted. When I first started, I spotted my neighbor, so I ran back to tell her something. We spoke, and then I continued, but I forgot to start my watch again. I estimated where the 1/2 mile mark was and just started the watch at that spot.
After a short stint, I had to go to the bathroom a little bit, but I assumed that the bathroom at the park would be closed. As I approached the park, I told myself not to stop, but for some reason, I forgot the conversation that I had just had with myself and checked the bathroom anyway. Of course it was locked. Because I stopped, the urge to go increased, so I had to go to the porta pottie.
As soon as I got going again, I spotted an unleashed dog in the distance. I decided to change my route a little to avoid the dog, so I had to wait to cross the street. When I stopped at the hotel, the bathroom was being cleaned.
I just couldn't get into this run. Pace 9:07-total mileage 11.5
