“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” - Walt Disney

Shorts and Socks and Tops, Oh My!

Somehow the dirty laundry pile has multiplied exponentially this week - especially the dirty running clothes!  When I was changing this evening, there were no clean shorts or capris to be found...  So I went for a pair of running tights I recently purchased, but hadn't worn yet.  I was worried that I would be too warm running in them inside on the treadmill, but the good news is that I figured out that when you get hot in running tights, you can just stop, pull up the ankles, and turn them into capris!

Today's stats:
  • 0.52 mi warm-up walk
  • 3.0 mi treadmill run; 40:36 min; 13:32 min/mi

Split Decision

There was no way I was doing 8 miles on the hilly gravel trail this weekend, so I split the long run into two shorter runs: I did 4 miles outside on the trail, then immediately followed up with 4 miles on the treadmill.

Saturday's stats:
  • 0.57 mi warm-up
  • 4.0 mi trail; 0:52:28 min; 13:07 min/mi
  • 4.0 mi treadmill; 0:54:52 min; 13:43 min/mi
