Early icy run

I wanted to get my run in before work on Thursday, and so I set my alarm for 4:30am. As my body is wont to do, I woke up earlier than my alarm, at 3:30. I huddled in bed until 4 and then gave up and went out for my run.

The temps this morning were awesome, with the air temp around 37 degrees. The wind was annoying, but I could tolerate it. The worst part was the ice. About 30% of my run required me having to navigate ice on a black road in the dark with just a headlamp. At one point I was on a bike path that was incredibly slick. My wife pointed out to me tonight that you can actually see how much I slowed down in my run data to get over that section.

I managed to make it home after 7 miles without falling on my butt. I need to make some adjustments to my 7 mile course though because it’s coming up a bit short unless I circle around for a tenth of a mile or so. I get a day off now, and then it’s a 28 mile weekend with 18 on Saturday and 10 on Sunday.
