A Bit Chilly – RunLog 12/2/19

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.

Snow halo around the sun, but we got lucky and the snow missed us yesterday. But it did not today.
Today’s snow

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.
