Nearly 10 miles on a route I have only run a few times in my life. It is on too busy of a road for my tastes: I prefer passing about 5 cars in 90 minutes. I had about 50 cars pass me on this run, which is silly for most of you who live in a city, but I prefer the solitude of my country runs. The GPS whacked out on me today, as it has done in the past, so I never knew my true mileage. After it uploaded to Strava I see what happened - for some reason it locked into a location a mile plus down the road from me, so at 0.5 miles it had me at 2.0 miles - so odd.

6 miles at noon. Just under 20 degrees, but full sun, so I was quite warm as I have the right clothes. I drenched the headband and hat, which is a good thing. I hate being cold on runs. Fairly good turnover.

Went to lunch with a friend, so no time for a run. With the schedule for my new job I'm quickly learning I either need to get up at 5 and run in the dark, or run at noon. I'll plan on running at noon... :)

4 fast miles at 11 am, as I needed to be back for a phone meeting. This working from home gig helps me run during light, which is fantastic.

6 miles from home at 1 pm - lotsa meetings. Not too cold or windy, but it’s relative - 31 might be freezing for some, but without much wind it was my midweight tights and my mid weight top, plus a hat and mittens.
