5M early this morning on our home TM because my wife had to be at work 6:00am. Not too motivated and still waking up with a bit of the crud but it is improving each day. Pushed myself just to get 5, but at least at a decent clip. Try to get a longer run at lunch today depending on how things go with getting my truck checked out.
Total time: 32:00 (Saucony Trigon - 124 miles)
6.75M run at lunchtime around the river with Jon Allen. We planned on hooking up and decided about 1 hour before the run to go for it even with the pretty bitter cold (weather site said 7 degrees with -10 degree windchill before I left for the locker room) but beautifully clear skies.
After dressing down into my winter running gear, discovered I forgot one thing...my running shoes! I had taken the home to run in over the holidays and forgot to bring my locker room shoes back with me today. So, I ran in my Rebok hikers that I wore to work today...a bit on the heavy side but they did the trick.
Great run with Jon at a nice even 7:00 pace...once again good company and conversation. Heading south into the wind was really cold, but coming back with the wind at our backs was not too bad.
Happy New Years to everyone!
Total time: 47:45
