I prefer to run my intervals downtown by the river since it is pretty flat. And my route to get the car? Reasonably hilly. I ran 15 minutes as a warm up then started in on the intervals. I wasn’t expecting too much since my legs were still pretty tired from yesterday’s spin, but I managed to pull out some half decent intervals. They were over before I knew it, and then it was time to finish the rest of the run out at an easy pace.
There wasn’t a sidewalk available the entire way, and it looked like the sidewalk was disappearing as I ran past the Ford dealership. I opted to run off the path and on to the dirt…except I didn’t realize that it wasn’t just dirt…it was a mud pit! My Kayano 15s that had less than 20 miles on them? Not so shiny white anymore! I finished up the run and wound up across the street from Toyota and in front of a big pile of fluffy white snow. If there is one thing that a big pile of snow is good for it is to clean mud off your shoes! Here’s what they look like now after a good snow cleaning:
I picked up the vehicle, then headed off to the grocery store to pick up a few last minute ingredients for tomorrow’s Great Lunch Swap. I cooked up some Indian red lentil dal with tomatoes, cauliflower and spinach over rice (with some mango chutney on the side).
Alright, time for bed since I have an early morning date with the pool!
