Re: Post your daily exercise routine

All of this pent-up energy seems to diminish with age Surfermom. The mind is willing but the flesh is weak.... And once I get sat down with this computer after a run with some hot porridge steaming in the bowl, all my plans of an industrious day seem to evaporate....

After yesterday's mudfest on the lane I decided to keep my shoes clean and do a nice road course. At six miles it's a bit longer than my usual route, but hey, I've never been one to turn down an extra mile or two. It was going well as I left the village, a bit nippy but not freezing, and a beautiful red hue in the eastern sky just before sunrise.

Then suddenly I noticed the odd slip and slide and realised that out in the country it was a degree or too colder, and the still damp roads had a thin layer of ice. There were some places where traction was good but I had to be careful, one lapse of concentration and I would have been sitting rather than running...

The run went without incident and although it took me a few more minutes to do the extra mile, I didn't have to spend time cleaning my shoes at the end... A very enjoyable 6 miles......

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

Just back from North Carolina where my only opportunity to run was in a hotel gym, thanks to fog and mist putting an icy glaze on most every running surface.

I am back home though, with my laces are tied and the rest of me covered in burqa black so as not to worry about the mud. Much of the soils running along the coastlines here are "ultisols," Latin for "Made-of-rust-staining-everything." Yes, it's still a muddy mess here after a weak. Nothing to do but ignore it, run, and break out the firehoses afterwards.

0.0 today, but I hope to report back with a few digits ahead of that decimal.

Thanks for the inspiration, OGF. No excuses!

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

There is nothing like having to be in swimwear in a couple of weeks to light fire under my feet. The mirror tells no lies.

Actually, it was just beautiful out yesterday with overcast skies and cool temperatures conducive for running. When it was time to wind down, I decided to continue on. A few bends in the road later, taking the right fork, being drawn on to the marshy pond, and then past the blooming pecan trees, it was finally a matter of time that made me turn around.

What a surprise when I ran my best distance of the year: 9.44 miles. I'd say 9.5, but that would be cheating .
