Another Five

Luckily, I didn't need to go out and run first thing this morning because it was all kinds of nasty: cold, slush falling from the sky and windy. Just a whole pile of yuck. It stopped actively slushing by 4:30 or so, and I headed out. It still wasn't particularly nice out, but certainly survivable. It was only a degree or so colder than yesterday, but it felt much colder. Of course, not as cold as I dressed for, so I warmed up quickly.

I ran the same loop as the other day, and the conditions were similar. The powerlines were really soft, and at one point I sunk in up to my knee. Always fun to go from sinking an inch or two to sinking up to your knee. Other than that, the run was uneventful.

Three days in a row for about 25 miles. Good numbers for me, and I'm starting to get fittish. I can tell when things are coming together when I feel sluggish for the first couple miles. When it takes a while for the blood to get flowing, it's a good sign.

And, now apropos of nothing...Journey SQUARED!!!

I noticed the woman in the video was underpronating while walking.

using Safari the address in my last post didn't wrap but using firefox it did. Just
1. Google "chapelle" + "white people can't dance"
2. Click on the link to the video
3. Sit back and enjoy
