Got out for 7 miles tonight before getting together to have a couple of beers and play cards with friends. The miles were labor-some -- I skipped my speedwork this week because of time-consuming doctor's appointments -- but with all the walking and carrying things I'm doing at work it is taking a toll on me.
By mile 4 I'm usually back to a place where the running at least feels easy, though. The 'skip' button on my headphones is shot again. Happens usually after the moisture build up becomes too much for the headphones. For now they still work but I'll need to stick with listening to books or podcasts on long runs as it is really frustrating to not be able to skip songs on shuffle.
Tomorrow is a rest day so I'll take it easy. Additionally the snow may keep us house bound, but I'm still planning to throw on my lovely waterproof spikes and head out for a long run Saturday snow be damned.
