It was freaking freezing cold all weekend, thus it was a rest weekend. Oh well.
Then today rolled around and I seemed to have totally forgotten how the hell to dress for a winter run in MN! I guess I was just wwwaaayyy too optimistic by the “3” in the ten’s digits of the temperature reading and neglected to consider any sort of wind speed or humidity information. My run was windy and cold by the sole fault of moi.
Relaxed pace but damn cold. ~30 F with 15-20 mph wind and humidity.
Good thing I had Ian and Sami to keep me company! They let me babble away the whole time without trying to throw me into the river!
Threads: Nike Relay – Women’s Running Capris, Danskin tank top from ages ago, Chicago super cute and comfy Marathon participants t-shirt, Novara Conversion Bike Jacket – Women’s (with sleeves…these were a life saver today) and shorty running socks! :-(No compression!! What was I thinking?!?!)
I definitely should have worn compression socks today. First, they would’ve covered my cold shin skin. Second, I think they help reduce my post-run knee pain/aching. Maybe improving the extremity circulation during the work out keeps things better temperature controlled and puts less stress on the near by joints. (But then again, maybe not.)
Treads: trusty Mizuno Wave Creation 11 (with far too many miles on them already)
Will dress appropriately tomorrow…
