First 6 Mile Run in a Long Time

And I was really hoping the park would have drinking fountains and restrooms available. I get that people are still panicked about coronavirus, but at least let me evacuate at the restroom.

I didn’t go as fast downhill as I had hoped I would get, but I think the song wasn’t helping as much as I would have liked (well, it was a lot of the end of a song, and a slow start to the next, so that didn’t help either).

My head got too hot around 1.5 miles, so I tied my shirt over it.

My under layer shirt however was black, and the temperature was in the mid 70’s, and I got too hot, and was getting dehydrated, and needed to go pee by the time I reached 2.75 miles. No worries, there’s a park at the intersection where I’m going to turn around. But no, the restrooms were “Closed for the season” (um, winter’s over, dudes). And the drinking fountain was capped off with PVC. So I rested in the shade of the restroom until my temperature cooled down, and slowly made my way back home.

My playlist was kind of crappy, and there’s not much point in saying anything about it. I had to skip a lot, re-arrange a lot. Not much good info for creating future playlists.
