AM: 9 mile fartlek in 64 minutes. I did fifty minutes of 2 minutes "on" and 3 minutes "off" with a 2 mile run with Abby after. I also ran back and forth to the bridge a couple times while Andy was fishing.

The 2 minute fast efforts were entirely by feel but probably ranged from half marathon pace down to 5k pace. Nice run.

Went to town around lunchtime to use the wifi at the bakery. Closed on Monday. Then went to the library to use its wifi. Closed on Monday. Monday's seem to be an extension of Sunday here in Pine river. So I'm sitting in the parking lot of the library being happy that their wifi at least doesn't require a password.

Did some grocery shopping and then stopped by Hardware Hanks with Andy and Abby to buy 2,400 BB's for the air rifle so they can blast away at cans and trees all afternoon.

PM: 3 mile walk/jog for my mental health.

I finally found the time to log onto FRB and found out why I have left voicemails on your house phone without a response.
