Remember my last post about facing my fears? Well, yesterday was another great opportunity to conquer one of them. We had the first snow this season! It’s not that much really, but the roofs and streets are clearly white. Nice! But also cold, around 30°F, maybe even less. Yikes!
Yesterday my co-worker Alex and I went on our usual Friday Lunch Break Run.
- Distance: 3.125 miles (5 km)
- Time: 38:30 minutes
- Average pace: 12:20 min/mile
- Feeling: Muddy
Once again we went to our favorite trail along the riverside. I didn’t notice that my calfs were covered in mud until we returned.
During the first 5 minutes I was really cold, but then my body started to warm up. The warmth didn’t reach my legs, though, they stayed cold throughout the entire run. Bummer! Need to get some warmer pants. Or maybe just wear some roomy fleece pants on top? I’ll give it a try.
As it was so cold and muddy – didn’t want to slip and fall and hurt myself! – I decided to take it slow. But when I calculated my average pace afterwards, I found out that I wasn’t that slow at all! Great!
Today will be a rest day. Our plans are: going to a local Christmas market, having some mulled wine, and enjoying a beautiful sunny winter day.
Have a nice weekend!
