Monday: 1.5 w/Jimmy on roads. I headed out the door at 4:30am. I was underdressed and lacking the mental fortitude to go longer. I just didn't have it this morning. Legs felt good. Maybe I'll be tougher tonight.
Tuesday: 0. I desperately wanted to get out and play in the -6 degrees weather this am, but both babies were up from 2am until I went to work. I let Gina sleep while I tried to play super dad.
Wednesday: 1 mile w/Jimmy on rds at 6 am. The babies repeated yesterday's performance. I think they are secretly trying to kill us. Gina got up around 5:50 and I was able to get a very brief run in. I hustled in order to clean the fresh 6 inches off the cars and take out the trash and recycling before school.
Thursday: 4 w/Jimmy early am. Walmart n' back. I got out the door at 4:50 am. The roads were still pretty snow covered on the shoulders. It was a toasty 26 degrees this morning.
Friday: 3.5 w/Jimmy. I ran a slight variation of my usual morning route. Warm morning, 28 degrees. Right patella tendon was a little noticeable on this run. Finished with 2 sets of leg lifts.
Saturday: 3 w/Jimmy. Got out the door around 1:00pm. I thought this day might become a zero after a busy morning. Glad I got out there.
Sunday: 10 solo 1:24. Great Hinsdale Loop. Oxbow, Monument, 119, HRT, Prospect, School St, Plain, Monument, Oxbow. This is the longest road run that I've done since college. Only 1 pitbull came out after me. Lucky (for it) it was wearing an invisible fence collar. I jumped on someone's porch across the street and was ready with some lawn furniture. The added adrenaline helped get me home. The last couple miles were a real grind.
