Time – 47:11
Distance – 5.0 miles
Pace – 9:25 min/mi
Elevation – Treadmill at 1%
Treadmill run with 1 mile warmup and cooldown, and 3 miles at 8:59 pace. Just putting in miles. I kept the legs moving and watched the Chiefs/Titans game.
Well, pitchers and catchers report in about a month
I didn’t get to watch very much of the Rams game, as I had to hit the grocery store before the ice storm gets here, but it’s not like I missed much. It’s a little like they never left St. Louis when you have this kind of a disappointment. High hopes give way to reality. Oh, well, St. Louis Cardinals baseball is right around the corner.
In other news, the weather should be turning soon. There’s a warmup on the way with rain, but because of the time we’ve been under freezing, it will ice today and tomorrow. After that, however, we should start seeing more normal temperatures in the 30’s and 40’s, which is something I can run in. Too cold, and my hands really start hurting. Years of exposure and inadequate gloves have caught up with me, and I can’t do super cold for a long time in normal running gloves. Sure, I could spring for something really thick and expensive, but that seems like overkill when I already have the gym membership, and using the treadmill to set speeds is good training for the winter. I can keep my running pace in check and not too fast, so I don’t leave my season inside the YMCA.
