These little teases of spring are so nice yet so mean! Today it was 55 and sunny, so I got out for a nice 3 mile run – and even got a little sunburned! – and I’m glad I did because it’s now 36 and threatening to snow tonight and tomorrow. I’m glad I was able to get out, but come on Mother Nature! Can’t we all just play nice?
I went to a new spot today, mainly because it’s 45 minutes closer than my usual spot and much hillier than the trail. Plus, it’s asphalt, which I think will help get my knees ready for the punishment of 13.1 miles on the road better than the crushed stone did. My knees definitely felt it today, but overall I feel really good. I think I’ll rotate between both in order to preserve my knees a bit but still get in plenty of time on the asphalt and the hills.
