I felt great on this run. It wasn't too cold or windy. I kept from being bored by running around the neighborhood for the first 5 sets, and then ran back the other way for the last 4 sets. I would have run the neighborhood twice if I kept going. Boring!
I need to find a better place to run. This neighborhood is getting to me. I would drive and park by a trail, but I have issues with driving myself to go for a run. Plus, by the time I get home, get changed, and get out there it's practically dark. I like that I'm always just a few blocks from home if something were to go wrong. If I had to drive back home, I don't think I'd like doing that in the dark. There's a great bike path I'm planning on checking out when it gets warmer and brighter outside. Only a few weeks left until the light starts to last again!
I can't wait for spring! Winter is by far my favorite season, but I can't stand it after a while. Bring on slightly warmer weather. I always look better in cold-weather clothes :) Summer isn't my best look.
My husband and I are hoping to check out a hockey game tonight. Our house is a freakin' mess and we have a busy weekend planned, but we've been wanting to go see a game all season. Maybe the magic fairy maids will clean my house for me....
Running related question:
Are running socks a must?
I've been reading a lot of posts on other blogs about how amazing running socks are. I have never had a problem with regular socks before. I ran track in high school, wore regular socks, and never had a problem. When I ran for a bit in college, I wore regular socks, and never had a problem. When I ran last spring (before huge life drama caused me to stop), I wore regular socks, and never had a problem. So far this winter I haven't had a problem either.
What's so special about these socks? Other than they are expensive.
Is it just because I haven't run far enough yet? I have never run more than 4 miles at one time in my life. Would I need these "magic socks" if I run more than 4 miles? My husband and sister-in-law ran a half-marathon last summer while wearing regular socks and didn't get a single blister.
What's the big deal?
