Finally a run that I enjoyed! warmup, 4 x ~1km long moderate-gentle hills aiming for 6min/k pace , cooldown Very sunny out, and a pleasant 18*C Was a good workout because it's 4 different trails up the same hill so more interesting than doing the same trail multiple times.
Determined that the bird that attacked me Wednesday was actually a barred owl, according to a single sign at a random trail intersection - "It's believed that these birds are young owls who mistake human movement as prey movement" Apparently you're supposed to "remain calm and wave your arms to let the owl know that you're human. Move away slowly" instead of screaming and sprinting away like I did. Oops.

Slow jog down to the beach and around PSP because I was listening to a podcast (= I run slow) instead of music (=I run less slow) . Until I got attacked by a bird. Ran much faster after that (basically just around sunset time so it was pretty dark in the forest and I didn't have a headlamp so didn't see what happened, but something flew(?) down from behind me, clawed into my head and pulled out some hair. I screamed, continued running but a bit faster. Then it happened again, I screamed louder, I ran faster. It was in general quite surprising (because I didn't hear/see it coming), painful (I had a bit of a red mark on my head afterwards) and kinda scary even though I'm pretty ~one with the birds~. Note the 60 bpm increase in my hr near the end of the run...
This did not do much to increase my liking of running in PSP.
