Running On Empty

Time change actually helped for a change this year. I usually try to get that extra hour of sleep and end up losing more sleep than normal. Guess it helped to go to bed at a normal hour and wake up before my alarm. And then I set my watch back an hour to the correct time and slept in an hour. After that, I got out of bed and headed out to the trail. The run was fairly uneventful other than the insane wind.

I was a little cold.

Altras make me look fast.


Temps were about 40F. Wind was high (around 35 to 40 mph). Sun was sort of out and sort of not. Rain was mostly just leaves dripping on me.

Fluids and Fuel:
Had an applesauce before I started. During the run was just plain water. Recovery was a breakfast burrito, hashbrown, and latte.

Aches and Pains:
None. Lower back has been tweaky the past few days but felt good after I ran a bit.

Wore thermal shirt, long sleeve jacket, vest, two BUFFs, gloves, shorts, and pants.

Naughty Neil:
Breakfast. It was totally not right. Breakfast burrito I might be able to get away with but I just couldn't resist the siren song of the deep fried hashbrown.

Today's Motivation:
I new I needed to work in the attic today so I knew I'd need to wear comfy clothes for that so I knew I'd end up in my running gear anyway. So I went for a run first.

Mile 1 - 13:12
Mile 2 - 16:45 (spent a 2 or 3 minutes taking care of the trail here - and no, that's not code for taking a dump)
Mile 3 - 12:59
Finish - 42:57
