When I set out for my run this morning it was not only dark, but a pretty brisk 34 degrees.
2.27 mi @ 9:36/mi
For 34 degrees out this run was pretty great. I cut it a little short because I didn’t want to get too far from home and be really cold. My lips were starting to really feel the cold, but thank goodness for gloves and ear warmers! My pace probably would’ve been a bit faster but the last half mile or so I’d picked up a somewhat large/awkward piece of recycling that’s been driving me nuts every time I’d run by.
Anyone else pick up recycling when they’re out for their runs/walks?
I don’t do trash…just recyclables. The Ready Set’s new album helped pump me up, even up this steady hill. 🙂
Because it was dark out when I started, and for most of the run, I added two pieces of gear to the usual: flashlight and a pocketknife. Silly? Maybe. Did it make me feel better? Yes.
Last night I’d attempted to get my new rice cooker from CSNStores to work, but it just wouldn’t heat up. I read and re-read the directions wondering why it was so complicated. I eventually just gave up and cooked the rice in my trusty Le Creuset dutch oven.
Not sure what to do with all the rice I made. Ideas?
Some will go to Edy since brown rice is so good for dogs, and she loves food variety too; I’m sure dry dog food gets pretty dull.
If you run, how do you deal with the cold weather? Bundle up? Head indoors?
Any fun plans this weekend?
