Just jump in

Sometimes this cold weather running is just best gotten over with.

I got up, checked the temperature-a balmy 18 F out.

Contemplated running 4 miles on the treadmill, and decided I did not want to do that. I finished my coffee, and decided to just go for total immersion.

Donned the tights, socks, two shirts; jammed a tobaggon hat and a wool Buff on my head, tied my shoes, found two non-matching gloves-the idea was to get dressed and go.

Grabbed my Wink pack-yes, not needed for a 4 mile run, but since it was still loaded with gear and water from Saturday's shortened run, decided might as well carry it.

The water tube froze where it came out of the pack, despite having a couple of Nuun tabs dissolved in the water. I may need to insulate the water tube if I am going to use it for winter running.

Not a bad run, not a great run. Just 4 miles around the block, got it done. Yay me.

  1. So true - it's never THAT bad once you get out there. And then you spend the rest of your day feeling slightly triumphant that you took on the cold!
