Total Distance

5 miles outside; 20 degrees with a breeze, 7 F wind chill. I was prepared. Good run, calves a bit sore, especially my left gimpy achilles calf. My right gimpy shin splint calf has behaved the past few days. 

Yesterday morning I woke up early to run, took care of business, then decided my eyelids were not behaving, so I should listen to my body. I got another hour of sleep and was grateful. Then had a stupid meeting bleed into the lunch hour and I had way too much to get finished so I had to skip my planned lunch run. Rats.

This is a very busy week at work for me so I was happy for the early run.

Look after those legs. Well done for getting the run in. Loved the employment of 'bleed'.
