Catching light snow on camera isn’t easy. Thankfully the 12 miles with Jason was easier. Fun conversations about our evolving world. He’s got a 50k next week and I have a marathon so this was a nice and “easy” 12 miles. Only a handful of hills that kept us around 9:30 pace. It was nice running in the light snow.
Happy New Year! Summer and I went out for a run to the park and did some distance on the trails as well. Someone stepped in some 💩.
I’ve always had a weird goal of running from one side of Columbus to the other. A buddy and I did that today on the Alum Creek Trail. Fun, foggy run for my final long run before the Disney Marathon in two weeks. Taper time!
I fricking tripped and fell twice this week while running. TWICE! And the last time I tripped and fell was 2 years ago!
First trip, this week, was Sunday morning. Glove palms ate most of it and I’m very glad I was wearing gloves. Landed hard on my ribs so took Monday off. Tuesday run was speedwork and no tripping. Then tripped again today while on my 7 mile run. Fell more gracefully and kinda rolled through it. Both times I tripped on the sidewalk with a slight lip. I think a lot has to do with running in shorts in the cold. Kinda like your lips not working right in the cold after a while. Legs get sluggish too. Temp was 25 today and wind chill was 11. I should have been in tights or pants. Not shorts. Thankfully no major issues other than sore ribs still. Live, run, and learn!
Happy Thanksgiving! Got in a run at 12:30AM before work. Winds are about 20mph with gusts about 30mph. I dressed warm. Too warm. T-shirt, fleece, wind shell. Long sleeve t-shirt and wind shell would have been plenty. Noting that for future similar runs.
