Except in the winter when it gets dark early and the part of the run that goes up a windy country road with no shoulder and no streetlights turns into a death trap for runners.
So I had to run two miles today until I can figure out an alternate route. Part of the problem is that I don't do too well running past my house after a couple miles to run "just one more mile". Same reason I don't do laps. I get bored and stop.
On the positive side, I ran under ten minute miles, so I've cut over two minutes off my mile time since I started running again. It sure is feeling good. Definitely going to keep this up.
I do need gloves. I have been wearing a cutoff sweatshirt under my shell and that is about perfect, wore a toque (stocking cap in case you didn't know) today as it's gotten quite cold, but my hands were a bit frozen. Have to check the garage and see what I have out there.
