You still did the whole run despite the fact that “it blows”. Good for you. You have earned an extra 2 beers this week
Ha! I was compensating for the chips & queso, tacos, churros, and cocktail I had at my friend's birthday dinner last night. ;-)
Some of the others this morning did six miles on that same crappy trail. I don't know how they did it -- I *couldn't wait* to be done. It takes too much mental energy to focus on not wiping out with every step.
Tomorrow should be nicer (50ish).
Yeah, I have "nanospike"
attachments for my running shoes, but I didn't have them with me (sidewalks were clear yesterday afternoon so none of us were expecting it to be so icy again this morning...). The nanospikes would have helped with the slip-factor, for sure, but the lumpiness wsa still annoying (ankle roll waiting to happen). Poor me! ;-)
