It’s Finally Friday!

2 Jun

Today it was cloudy and overcast with the weatherman threatening to allow it to rain. How could he do that on my ride day? Alas I decided to run instead. Isn’t it nice to have options in life?

I have found this “nature trail” that circumnavigates Haverford College. My guess is it’s about 3 miles but the best part it is a quiet woodland in a city of noise. I find it very refreshing to “run thru the woods” even if it is in a city. Above is a pic of a meadow and a lake in the distance.

On my second loop I developed a slight hip pain. I keep telling myself that this is just a reminder of the pain to come when I do longer runs.

This weakend the plans are tonight I’m meeting my old friend Jailbird and his wife (he’s 39 she’s 29) for drinks at Flat Rock Saloon in Manayunk near the famous Manayunk Wall of the Philly Pro Cycling Race fame. He’s the Jailbird because he was one of the first people arrested at the old Vet Stadium during an Eagles football game when Philly instituted court at the Vet. You know they have a Judge at the stadium and he sentences you right there. Well Jailbird was one of the first arrested and sent to jail overnight to sober up.

Saturday I’ll work off the beer by doing a brick that consists of a 75 mile bike and a 10 mile run on Saturday. Sunday I hope to swim either at the Y or I’m looking for someplace to do some open water swimming, a lake, pond or something!

Here is a pic at the trails end….
