Greetings. Today I did my first winter run. Start time was 7:05am and the temperature was brrr:
< With the way my daily schedule is, morning runs will probably always suit me the best, despite all the after work runs I did in 2010 and last year. As mentioned in a the previous, I'm getting back in the saddle. The temps this morning, surprisingly, only afffected my hands (as I misplaced the running gloves I got a few months back). What was most aggravating was the headphones that kept slipping off. I run with the Nike+ system, aka Nike+ iPo, so I get audio markers statuses from my *coach*. I really got hooked after reading an article in Wired two years or so ago:
and afterwards, that’s all she wrote. As for the run (walk), a 12:58 min mile…slowww (thanks headphone issues and slight shin splints). Slow and steady is what I gotta focus on as I get back into this thang> On the positive, I felt and still feel really good, alert, etc. Run stats are here.
After work, it’s the gym. Focus will be on weights, though I may run again. Current Nike+ goal is 12 runs in 4 weeks. After that…NEW HEADPHONES!
That’s it…back to work.
