... and, boy, was I huffing and puffing. I wore ice grippers on my shoes since there was ice under the snow on the road. I did not slip on my run and I seemed to be all right from my fall down the steps yesterday. I hit the edge of each one as I slid down the steps. Lucky for me, there was only 5 steps. It is times like that when I pull myself up and am thankful that I have been working out these past few years and have a stronger body than I did years ago.
Back to my run, I did about three miles doing one of the cadence and acceleration gliders drills and magic mile from the Jeff Galloway app. I did not have my garmin and went back and forth on the more level spots on my route and when I finished my Nike + registered close to the mileage on the app. So, I think my pace was what it was supposed to be for the ratio I selected for the walk/run.
It was good to run outside again; the temperature was above freezing. I missed the high temp for the day, but it felt so good to run and not have to stare at a wall.
