Fallen Off the Wagon Again

and on to the running track.

3.18mi (5-ish km) 21'45"

Since I was on the track I did a recalibration before the run, and I think it helped a bit. Every lap was a smidge shorter than the previous one, but the end of the 5km was only about 100 meters short of where it should have been on the track (just the last two turns), so I think it's better anyway.

I wanted to get a clean 5k time, but alas, I was huffing and puffing so much at the end, that I clicked 'Menu' on the ol' Nano, figuring that it would pause, and it did, but unless you confirm that your run is over, It'll unpause. Hmm... Convenient or bad design? Since there is no such thing as bad design at Apple (only exploding batteries), it must be the former.

Anywhoo, my ankle felt fine, even after the run there wasn't any tweakiness, so I guess that's the end of my no running excuses.

On the plus side, since I'm running again, I feel perfectly allowed to buy those new chocolate covered mint oreos. Seriously yummy. They are ambrosia. Or crack cocaine. Maybe both.

have you tried hitting the pause/play button instead of menu?

(not sure how it works, really)

That would make sense - I'll try that. I only press the menu button because the nice lady tells me to.
