Saturday Jan 20 #

9 AM

Running 28:00 [3] 3.85 km (7:16 / km)
shoes: Asics Gel-Kayano 22

Another run in the FRP and Elmhurst woods, alternating directions. The paths were still decently packed with snow, but were squishy in some spots and icy in others, so had to go slower. I guess that bugged my L knee because it was Peaky Blinders for the whole run. I realized that it still isn't a full year yet since my knee surgery, so I guess this is par for the course. Decided that my goal this year is to srengthen my running technique on trails/ in the woods and change from a 'road runner' to an orienteering runner. I'm looking forward to that, but aim to do it gradually so my knees
( and hips, and ankles, ... ) adjust properly.
Great day to be outside! 4 degrees C, with the clouds clearing towards late morning :)

Walk with Sandra on Mud Lake roads, etc. Slippy snowy footing, so slow. Great chat, fresh air, beautiful salmon sunset over the frozen river. Yowza.

Running (snow-running) 28:00 [3] 3.9 km (7:11 / km)
shoes: Asics Gel-Kayano 22

Ran loops of Frank Ryan Park woods and Elmhurst Woods, alternating directions. Wanted to run 'slow on the snow', not the roads, and found it was great! My ankles and knees loosened up well, and the wee hills were fun.
My lungs are still not up to par, but felt OK by the end of the 28 minutes.
Met some cute dogs along the way!
Perfect temperature (-13C) with little to no wind.
