Slippery Slope

Today was my five mile pick up run and it pretty much sucked. I think my tights (not the saggy gray pair - a different better-fitting pair!) are not warm enough. My legs didn't get warm at all during this run making my "bursts of speed" tight and slow. There is a lot of ice on the sidewalks, so much of this was a cautionary run. Once I found a stretch of about .75 miles that was clear I basically ran back and forth on that the whole time.

Miles = 5.31
Pace = 9:06

Sucktastic. I am going to attribute the slowness to the conditions, but it could possibly have something to do with a wine/fondue hangover that I'm nursing. More on that later!

how cold the slippery sidewalks not slow you down! I'm sure the next run will kick butt

It's all about the treadmill in these conditions!

I think I'm going to try to run outside today - I took the day off yesterday.

Way to go with sticking with your running schedule.
