I hate running in the cold…and of course this is spring in New England, so cold snaps are inevitable. Broncho-spasms are not made of win. DNL. 😦
I had to stop twice to retie my right shoe! What the hey, man?!
The new running shoes were definitely more comfortable though…it didn’t feel like I had lead weights strapped to my feet! And I added a little bit of distance, too, I noticed the intervals were falling at earlier landmarks. No side pains this time though, so that’s a plus. So this was a better run in that I went further and didn’t have the same physical barriers during the run…but the recovery immediately afterward was tougher.
Now if it only warms up and stays up…
On a side note, the neighborhood forsythias have bloomed since the last run!
