The morning was grey and overcast, the temperature supposedly 16° (though I’d never have believed it), breezy, with occasional light drizzle. I pushed hard early, and my thighs suggested that I might be asking too much of them, but at the end of the mile, my timer said 9:05. I can’t suggest an experiential confirmation of the difference in times from a few weeks ago, but the obvious inference is that my legs are getting stronger, and perhaps even that I’m oxygenating more effectively (the real goal for me). Either way, I’m surprised and a little pleased. Morning Office, fruit breakfast, and Legends. I finished the ‘Ten Generations’ section today, and made some headway on ‘Noah’. Majliss supplied dinner, and Jurassic Park the entertainment.
