I haven’t seen a fox in awhile. One was living in the neighborhood last winter. But then I haven’t seen much snow either. Apparently winter came and went while I was living in Texas this January. I don’t mind the warmth, but I’d enjoy some snow. Every chance of it seems to only leave behind a slight dusting.
I completely over dressed Saturday. Fortunately I was layered and was able to pocket my gloves, tie my shell around my waist and roll up my sleeves. I ran into half my neighborhood Saturday on the LoBo Trail. Keith and Jen were dressed the smartest – Jen had on a good looking skirt. Susan and Eve looked toasty with their winter hats. I dressed better today with shorts and a light long-sleeve tech shirt. The wind picked up a bit near the end but it was around 60°.
Maybe I haven’t been running enough to know how to properly dress. I’ve been going most of the work week without running, then I get in 3 or 4 days over the weekend. Got in 10 miles Saturday and another 10 today. Nice distance but I really need to try to get in shorter runs during the week. A ten mile run leaves me fairly fatigued and I know I’d recover better if I were running more, even short runs, during the week. Moab is fast approaching and I would like to be more than just fit enough to run a half marathon comfortably. I’d like to take advantage of not having gained weight over the winter to run strong.
The trick will be getting Karen to cook so I have time to squeeze in a few miles before dinner. She’s planning lasagna tomorrow. And you know that will be good for a night of leftovers. I slow cooked a lamb stew today and there will be some leftovers from that too. This might be the week to increase my running. No cold fronts coming through that I know of so no excuses.
