Got in a mellow bike ride today before work and then tried to push myself into a comfortable tempo run after work. I ran the first 5 miles pretty easy (37:00) and then the last 5 I tried to push out a comfortably hard pace to see how that would feel. It never felt just right but I was able to bust that out in 30:00. I still have a lot of work before I feel "fast" but I was pleased that I was able to pretty comfortably maintain 6:00 mile pace for 5 miles. It was weird though, it didn't really feel all that hard but I also didn't really feel like I could go much faster. I guess I should expect little speed right now since everything I have done for so long has been at such a slow pace.
The cruise ships have returned to Juneau for the summer. I guess they've been back for over a week now, but since I was gone to Utah until Sunday night I had not been in downtown yet with a ship in port. Today though I ran right through that area while 4 boats were docked up. What a mess. When people get off these ships it's like they have no ability to function in a normal manner because everything has been so meticulously provided for them for several days on the boat. Running through these swarms of people I felt like I was running through a crowd of robots that were programed to move in the most unexpected ways. People standing in middle of the road. People walking 5 wide thus taking up the entire sidewalk. I even had one guy who mysteriously took a hard step to his left just as I was about to pass him on his left. I had to jump to my left to avoid a collision and I don't think he even noticed. Note to self: Do not run through downtown again until September.
