2010-10-26 - Noisy Parking Lot Laps

~4.5 miles @ ~9 min/mi

Halfway around the first circuit a jackhammer is breaking up the sidewalk. I swerve left across the road and keep my eyes averted, imagining thereby to avoid flying pavement chips. Next time around, the machinery is still pounding away; I divert to the right and dance along the edge of a grassy hillside. Final lap finds the pneumatic whacking stopped, but workmen are now slicing across another sidewalk slab with a whirring water-cooled concrete saw blade. Timing for the ~1.5 mile loops today: 14:47 + 14:08 + 12:04.
