    Despite taking a break from running for whatever reason, he still woke up in time to do his run, if he’d been running at the time.

    Mom supposes that the run was a short one, allowing him to sleep in somewhat, since he only recently recommended running. But he was still in running shape and the run wasn’t that short.

    Recommenced running, not recommended. Typed correctly, burned by autocorrect and poor proofreading.

    Thanks for the explanation. I could tell he was half-misleading his mom in some regard, but couldn’t get the specifics in place.

    Really odd wording that you can probably interpret many ways. I thought Frazz was saying he didn’t have to learn how to walk/run again.

    Frazz really does seem confusing this week. He wants to run in the dark, so that would seem to mean that starting early would be important. Especially if you’re starting to run again, because you’d want more time to account for a slower pace and to make sure you had a bit more recovery time before getting on with your day. Personally, I’d be expecting him to start at the same time or even earlier. However, what’s important here is his Mom’s thoughts, and that would be that he’d be running for a much shorter distance and would be able to start later… but as Frazz points out, he isn’t starting from “total scratch”, ie. he isn’t so badly out of running condition that he needs to cut back his distance to practically nothing, he’s still in shape for a long run at an easier pace (like I assumed).

    I don’t think this strip is from the current arc, I think it’s older. (Or else I skipped reading the paper this week, and it’s only Wednesday.) He is making his usual espresso, so maybe that figures in.

    Mary in Ohio - Nope, this arc is from this week, started on Tuesday.
    That one was also discussed here on CIDU, to no avail.

    This strip is from last year:
