Green Ribbon Trail - 10.5 miles, averaged 8:03. Felt good.

Ran to Flourtown to finally find this trail. It was okay. Too many road crossings with blind corners and hills. Fun to explore though.

Treadmill - 40 minutes + 10 minutes on the bike

The middle treadmill has a snapped plug, so I warmed up a bit on the bike. Guy offered to cut his run early but I told him that wasn't necessary. I am going to try to do a bit more cross training. Not necessarily in place of running but to strengthen some of the weaker areas in my legs. I might use it to double if I can get out of bed in the morning. We shall see how long that lasts.

Forbidden Drive - 10.5 miles, averaged 7:55

Wet and muddy, but I really zoned out and enjoyed the run. Maybe 4 people out there, which was nice as much as it is nice that so many people are normally out.

My friend send me a case of Surge soda, the magically delicious, citrus flavored soda from the late-1990s. Coke reissued it. It's amazing how much soda I used to drink when I was younger and now I have it a few times a year.
