Running 1:15:00 [3] 14.3 km (5:15 / km)
shoes: 200811 NB Absorb EX 12

My plan for today was a 45-50 minute run with a pace near 5:15 min/km, but I ended up getting lost and added 4 k to my already lengthy run. I ran via Davis Square to Alewife and through Fresh Pond. My intent was to go east to Harvard Square and home, but traveling south on Holworthy Street from Fresh Pond, I hit Mt. Auburn street and turned west. I thought I had been facing more northeast on Holworthy (running through Fresh Pond had disoriented me a bit), and I was turning southeast. After running almost 2 km and being increasingly disturbed at the uphill component and lack of Harvard Square in front of me, I noticed some "Watertown" signs and figured out my error.

On the plus side, I felt very comfortable (14-15 C, overcast); I ran in a wicking shirt and my running shorts. I had little difficulty sustaining a constant pace at 4/4 breathing, and my muscles and stamina were not strained. Nevertheless, I will take tomorrow much more gingerly.
