Dec 15: 9 miles in the snow. Kind of a tough run, ran around Lakewood, mostly in the streets because the sidewalks had a ton of snow and ice on them. Felt good however, and went a little further than I was planning on doing.
Dec 17: 5 miles on the dreaded treadmill at the YMCA. The weather just was not cooperating at all, so I decided to face my fears and run on a treadmill. Was happily surprised that I didn't hate it! (If you can't tell, I'm not a huge fan of treadmills...)
Dec 18: 7 miles on the treadmill again! Weather sucked, back to running inside. Today was the first day I ran in my New Balance 890v4. Out of the box, 7 mile run, not a bad first impression, more on that in a future post.
Dec 20: 7 miles Ran my normal 7 miler around Lakewood. At about 4 miles I picked up my buddy Josh and he ran the last 3 miles with me. Josh isn't a runner, but every once in a while will run a couple miles with me. Josh could be a great runner if he wanted too, he's super athletic. He's more into cycling, but I'm going to work on him and get him running with me a little bit, especially on the trails.
Weekly total: 28 miles.
Pretty straight forward, boring week. Actually didn't get on the trails at all this week, it would have been pretty tough with all the snow.
