After running most of the week with team /var/run, it was an adjustment getting back into solo running.
Dammit. It even feels colder when you’re running alone.
I just did a simple out and back on roads I knew would be lightly populated. Even though the temps were in the twenties, it felt a lot colder than the runs I’ve done all week in single digits.
I told myself to just go out for two miles. It was windier than the day before and I had a lot of things I wanted to get done. But after I was out for a few minutes, I realized it wasn’t so bad and made a 3 mile run out of it.
Took a slightly different route down some new streets, which was more for reasons of finding streets with freshly driven tire tracks to run in than adventure.
My first holiday gift came from Scott’s daughter and her husband, The Little Red Book of Running.
So far it’s been a nice casual read with some good tips/reminders about pace, increasing mileage, etc. Also: Amby Burfoot wrote the foreword and has the best running name ever.
