The bike's in the shop, and I haven't gotten much exercise in a while, so I went back on the track. My absence has definitely hurt my pace---I'd cut out running because of a hip-flexor thing that's chronic, not acute, and while I can run through it I thought I'd give it a break, so I haven't run at all in probably a month---and I wound up on the wrong side of 10-minute-miles. 93 minutes, 9.1 miles (on the way back I quit just past the big white tanks across the river). It's a nice trail, there. When I get the bike back I hope to ride through the city to the trail, then chain up the bike and run just on the trail itself, so as not to pound any actual sidewalk.
