Tuesday May 14 #


Ran intervals today. Since the gates into the National Forest are still closed, I had to run in from a gate to get to where I wanted to be--though in this context "had to" is funny because it worked out to be about the right amount for a warmup/cooldown anyway. Windy and sunny out, with the wind not being bad, while it did keep it cool enough that a light jacket and knit cap were nice to have on.

Knee was about what passes for usual these days: a bit of discomfort or soreness while warming up, but more or less fine otherwise. And actually in some weird way it usually works out that running faster feels better than running slowly--not that I was running all that fast.

More weirdly, the Forest Service has recently taken some kind of masticating machine down the road I was running on, and taken down (chewed up) many smaller trees and saplings right along the sides of the road. What they've taken down seems almost random, enough so that it's difficult to guess what the purpose was. The trees weren't encroaching into the road or road shoulder, the road is plenty wide and doesn't get much traffic at any one time anyway, and sight lines were perfectly fine as they were. Maybe it's just big boys with big toys?
