10 mile training run/walk/run

http://connect.garmin.com/activity/465816316

Absolutely gorgeous day! Not much speed, but good on the keep moving factor.

Got all the way out to Ocean Beach thru the park and back on Lincoln. I really wanted to push a little past 10, but my legs were conking out and much worse, my bladder had other ideas in spite of going the whole ten with no fluids during or for a few hours before.

It should be noted that Haight Street is one of the WORST places in the Bay Area to need to take a piss. The only worse place is the entire city of Berkeley, for basically the same reasons. I had to jump in a cab to Safeway. God bless the existence and availability of the Safeway rest rooms.

I know what you mean. I love hanging out on the Haight, and i usually take my out of town friends there, but holy cow. "Use the bathroom in whatever restaurant you ate at" should be on signs all over that damn neighborhood.

I can understand it from the POV of the business owners, but it's devastating when you want to run in and say, no, you don't understand, I'm not a filthy, drug-addict, pan-handler, latter-day hippie, I'm a runner, please let me use your bathroom.

Since my friend Ivan lives on Cole right off Haight, I'm going to see if I can arrange to use his apartment for a "pit stop" next time I do this route.

I would love to do that but my friends who used to live in the Haight moved.
