A Simple Running Log

Training for 1/7/15

It’s too damn cold outside!

Today, on top of the cold, we had wind. Lots of it, gusting up above 30 mph. I bundled up in two pairs of pants, three tops, my best gloves and my thickest, warmest socks. I left Pepper at home too. He freaked out, of course, but it was just way too cold for his little dork jacket.

I think I had on enough layers for the temperature, which felt like 6 degrees with the wind chill, but I couldn’t take the wind on my exposed face. I made it half a mile down the road — and that was running in a direction that wasn’t even totally head-on into it — before my face hurt so bad I had to turn around and walk home. Walk, because I had to hold my hands up to my face to block the wind.

So that was a total bust! It’s still going to be breezy tomorrow, but not this bad. I guess I’ll try again.

Meanwhile, since I’ve got all this clothing on now, guess I might as well go upstairs and do some strength training.
