Slow Five

I'm never too crazy about running on the roads in the town I teach in after it snows. The roads there aren't very pedestrian friendly to begin with, and the snow only complicates matters. So sometimes running shorter, safer comfort loops multiple times is a good compromise. Did just that today.

Took the pace really slow. Will likely continue that trend with all running this week, when I can run. It's a busy week with a big grad school paper to finish up before class on Wednesday, taking The Cheat to the vet for his annual check-up tomorrow, and having to be home for the heater repair guy (again) later this week. I want this week to end!

Ran 5.2 miles @ 8:28/mile pace.
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Mid 30s, overcast.
Asics GT-2140, long pants, windbreaker, short sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves (shed after 1.5 miles).

Good adjustment. I think we all cut back a bit when winter hits--trying to maintain summer workouts this time of year usually proves counterproductive.
