When I looked at out thermometer while I was getting ready for Bennies first walk, it said 6*F, I had already looked out the window and saw how much the tree limbs were moving, so I knew the feels like or wind chills were sub zero.
This is what the Accuweather app was telling me as the “official” temps.
Welcome to Winter only it is supposed to still be Fall. Oh well, January weather in November is the new normal.
In other words Brrrr.
Yeah, Bennie and I cut that walk pretty short. Based on that walk, even though it warmed up a bit, it was below my run outside temps. Plus the roads were still a LOT too icy out where I live to attempt running on them for an old fart that doesn’t bounce too well.
Planned Workout Description: An easy run
Variables that impacted the run: Feeling a bit tired after dealing with all the outside stuff yesterday. There is just something about extreme cold that takes something out of me more and more as I get older. So even though I was running on the treadmill my motivation was not what I would call overwhelming.
Comments: I got on the treadmill, set it to 6.8 mph, ran 4.0 miles, walked .30 for a cool-down and did my foam roll routine after the run.
In other words, an easy run, where I got the miles in.

I did get in the book Kicksology by Brian Metzler this morning and have gotten about half-way through it. I am enjoying it.
