Running (Street & Trail) 38:41 intensity: (30:00 @3) + (8:41 @4) 5.04 mi (7:41 / mi)
slept:6.0 weight:174.5lbs

From Northfield Rd., Jefferson St. to Garfield St./Oneida Ln. to Sonoma Rd. to Hempstead Ave. Johnson Ave. to Burley Dr. to Beech Ave. to Singleton Dr. to Bulls Run Pkwy. through North Bethesda Middle School, to Bradmoor Dr., to Bradley Rd., to Huntington Pkwy. to Garfield St./Aberdeen Pl. to Aberdeen Rd. to Wilson Ln. to Hampden Ln. to Overhill Rd. to Moorland Rd. to Custer Rd. to Northfield Rd. I'd intended a run from work but worked too late to make that work. I finally got outside after watching more of the Winter Olympics on television. Several dog walkers were out and I had to react when two of them lunged at me in the first mile. Fortunately their masters yanked them back. There were a few slow spots with snow covered trails. Having left my usual running shoes and other running gear at work for another possible run tomorrow, I ran in my less cushioned trail shoes. I guess reading Born to Run has been rubbing off on me. I ran most of the run on the balls of my feet. I was surprised that it felt fine--I figured that it'd take more building up first (I still expect that it will). I'd had known about this style being used by elites since 1980 and even achieved using it myself at times when I was in really good shape but I hadn't known about the potential for it reducing injuries.
