Does bad + good = mediocre?

One of those split personality days in commuting terms.  As I’ve been doing for the last couple of days I got the shuttle from Medford, and once at Ronkonkoma I took the 7:04 to Penn.  It didn’t seem inordinately crowded, and the SCA percentage was reasonably low, but things took a downward turn when a large person took the seat next to me at Farmingdale and made for a tight squeeze.  No, not an SCA, in fact not a man at all.  Which perhaps was a bad thing, as this 30-something woman was man-sized yet as noisy and squirmy as many women tend to be.  I was eventually able to get myself situated in a relatively unsqueezed position and turned up my iPod loudly enough to drown out her cell phone chatter.  Still, I was happier than usual that there weren’t any delays into Penn.  No wait at all for a 2 train to Fulton, and it wasn’t at all crowded.

If the morning was the “bad” part of the day, though it truly wasn’t all that bad, the afternoon was the “good.”  After a quick ride on a 2 from Park Place, I got the 5:41 to Ronkonkoma.  Right away I could tell that it didn’t seem particularly crowded, and sure enough the seat next to me remained gloriously empty the whole way. That surely made up for the morning’s discomfort!

Gym: I finished up my running-only week with two miles on the treadmill at 5.6 mph, making ten miles for the week.
