It was a cold 20deg, when I went for a run in Veteran's Park today. There was a wind, which made it feel even worse. I ran a modified Hangover 5 mile course.
The forecast for Friday is even colder, so I wanted to get this run in today.
I have started a routine, running Saturday on the trails, Sunday, and Tuesday & Thursday during the week. I don't have any set mileage amounts for the runs, I am just going how I feel.
As our buddy Beachy says, I'm just logging base miles.
I don't know if you can tell in this picture, but the 2 people are walking 2 basset hounds. Having 2 beagles, they are cool looking dogs.
This is one of the cool paths in the park. They built a boardwalk, in the woods, in an area that was "swampy". While it's not the Wildwood boardwalk, it's still fun to run on. I was having a race with a little sparrow, who was flying under the boardwalk. FYI... it was a tie.
Here are a bunch of Canadian Geese, enjoying the cold water of the lake. It was about 1/2 froze. I remember skating on the lake a bunch as a kid. Hopefully the cold weather will continue and it will be good for skating.
Anyway I ran the freezing 5 miles in 40: 00.
