On Friday, I ran another 4-miler, the same route as Wednesday. The biggest differences were the wind and the temperature. There was little wind Wednesday, and the temp was probably close to 30 degrees F. On Friday, a strong wind was coming out of the west, and the temp was closer to 20 degrees F. In all, I ran nearly a minute slower, 44:20. As I headed west, at times I felt as if I was running in place.
Later Friday, I walked to work, a mile-and-half trek from my house. I’m still reluctant to ride my bike on ice and snow, though I think I have a relatively dry route.
