Jogged up to the track yesterday. Nothing really planned. It has just been 2-3 years since I tried to turn my legs over faster than 10 minute pace. The trails and vertical really tend to shorten your stride. I wore a pair of light weight trainers. That's another first in a long time. I have been wearing Hoka One One shoes for shock absorption on hip and back. You have to remember I'll turn 60 in 2013. So just keeping moving is the goal. I ended up just doing a few strides to try and remember how to move. Nothing blazing fast but some stuff under 7. I was concerned about hpow I would feel last night and this morning but so far nothing out of the ordinary. I'll see how I feel and perhaps start adding strides after most runs.
More snow on Pikes Peak this week than all of December and January. That will lessen the fire danger a little. The dogs have been getting me up early, 5:30. If I were a morning type person I'd go run. But I've logged too many miles before dawn in my life. I now need coffee and the bathroom before I head out. PM jogging is much more pleasurable.
