Monday's run left me with the beginnings of several toe blisters. My shoes fit but there was a lot of road salt residue and even though it was dry, it got through the mesh of my shoes and mixed with sweat making my socks stick. The blisters weren't that bad but I wanted to avoid re-experiencing the results of ignoring them so I took two days off from running. This morning they were fine, but it was really cold and windy so I waited til noon for my workout. Just as I was going out the door, the phone rang and it was the driver of our gas delivery truck. He wasn't sure he'd be able to get back to the road if he came down our driveway. We hadn't shoveled since the last snow and the driveway appeared a lot worse than it actually was. Anyway, what I hoped would be an easy run became an afternoon of snow removal. The snow was light and too loose to throw in the wind so I didn't even get much of a cardio workout. It was just walking back and forth pushing the snow along the ground. Since the driveway is a quarter mile long, I was too bushed to run by the time I finished. Right now I'm wondering if I'll be ready to go again by tomorrow. At least I know we'll get our gas delivery.
