I got busy starting the initial process of researching a replacement for my iPad Pro last night (the battery is not holding a charge and it costs as much as a nice used Mac to replace). So if anyone has a lead on a Mac laptop for a decent (cheap) price let me know.
Which means that I forgot to write up my cold-arse run up in Waterville yesterday. So I will keep this short and sweet.
Planned Workout Description vs Actual: Easy run 5-7 miles, did almost 6.5 at a comfortable pace
Variables that impacted the run: Cold, windy, lots of clothes
Weather: Overcast, 26°F, Feels like 16°F, Humidity 61%, Wind 11mph from NE
• Day: Monday
• Course: Waterville Ramble
• Distance: 6.46
• Duration: 59:04
• Pace: 9:09
• Running Streak Day #: 4
• Comments: Typically this kind of day, I head inside and run on the treadmill. However, I had a bunch of errands to do in Waterville, so heading to Augusta’s Planet Fitness was really way out of the way.
So I sucked it up and ran in the chilly weather, but had a course where I could get back to the truck pretty quickly if I needed to. Which makes the run safer and better than what I could do at home.
I started out comfortably, battled the wind whenever I headed North, but fortunately I never really got cold. I dressed just right for a change, my typical overdressing for a run worked out fine today.
Shoes: Mileage (89.9) New Balance Fuel Cell Propel. Still bother that left toe a little more than I want, but it is not anything all that bad either. It is more a distraction than anything. The good thing I learned is that the Fuel Cell doesn’t loose its cushioning when it gets cold – so that is a good thing.
