Running, kayaking

Today I ran a 5k route that I had measured in Seward Park. (You can’t just go around once because that is only 2.5 miles.) I ran this more-or-less 5k route in 27:08. I sped up when I passed the 2.5-mile mark. Hopefully that will happen this Saturday evening too, in the Torchlight 5k, but I expect to be slower in the evening.

I also rode my bike down to Belltown and back today for a doctor appointment–getting a fasting blood lipid profile to see if the rather lax Paleo-approximate diet I’m on is as healthy as it seems to be. I have not had a cold or anything else in the 17 months since I gave up the grains and sugar. My elbow tendonitis, which had just gone away at that time, has shown no signs of coming back. And I feel more motivated and positive throughout the day in general.

Yesterday: a modified “Daniel” workout in 10:13, which was:

25 pull-ups
Run 250 meters
15 thrusters (55 lbs)
Run 500m
15 thrusters
25 pull-ups

Sunday, we spent five hours kayaking off of Anacortes on calm, blue water, in sunny weather, around Burrows Island and Allen Island, where we had lunch and poked sea creatures in tide pools.
