2 miles of mostly walking and some running on the TM this morning. Felt decent, not great, but not poorly, so that's encouraging.

Woke up early as my new meds don't let me sleep in very well, so I put on some warmish clothes, a windbreaker, and my microspikes, and went for a walk. First 3/4 mile was total ice on our dirt road, so glad I had the spikes on, then walked on my normal running route, but took a detour to see the house that burned last month not too far away. It's a total loss. Looks like a mother-in-law apartment on the property that was untouched, but the cars don't look driven so the family must be in town. I don't know them, but feel for them.

Walked back, and felt good about it all. Wanted to go for another walk later in the day but it never materialized.
