For some unknown reason, my Garmin kept losing its signal on my run this evening. Honestly, I think the Garmin may be circling the drain, but until it actually dies, flat out dies, I am not going to replace it.
So, despite having inaccurate numbers, I can tell you what the Garmin would tell you if it had recorded time and distance correctly: My run this evening sucked. No tangible reason why -- the weather is perfect, I slept well last night, my eating is normal, I'm not sick, I'm not stressed, and as far as I know, the stars are in the heavens where they belong -- it just sucked. It felt like I was really laboring, it was taking forever, I felt a little dizzy part way through, and I walked twice for about 30 seconds a piece because I just felt "blah."
I don't know, maybe it has some cosmic connection with election day; perhaps all those indecisive voters at the polls have some kind of kinetic resonance in the atmosphere -- collective tension or something. Hmmmmm, something tells me there is no scientific data to support that hypothesis, but I'm grabbing at straws here people.
