Well, I decided not to go up the Incline this morning, as it was around 19F, and I knew since it was slushy yesterday, it would be plenty icy this morning. I need to invest in some YakTrax before I attempt it in those kind of conditions. Instead, it got up to around 40F today, and sunny, so I opted to go for a run in the neighborhood. I set off on a 5K loop, being careful to watch the icy patches in the shade. Still ran in my Invisible Shoes without socks, but put some sweats on just because it was cooler. As I ran down and past the elementary school, I saw that it was recess. As I glanced over looking to see if our boys were out, I passed into some shade... hit an ice patch... and in a split second I was on my back in the middle of the sidewalk! Fortunately, my injuries were limited to my pride as I quickly jumped up and continued on.. hoping no one saw me!
Anyway, it was a good run, albeit a bit slow. Snail pace or not, I still outran my couch!
Oh.. and speaking of running (barefoot/minimalist or not), this run looks awesome! Check it out
Hope you all have a great weekend :-)
