Three miles and it's soo freaking cold!

Three miles and I ran the whole way. I only mention that because I had been mixing in some walking breaks as I break in my new shoes. Running in flats is very different for me than running in my old cushion shoes, but I'm getting used to it now. And actually I go significantly faster with the flats. I don't think it has that much to do with the shoe weight, but with the different running form it requires. I feel like I have a much faster top speed with the forefoot strike than with a heelstrike.

But it was too cold to be taking any walking breaks out there tonight. And just a few days ago I felt like it was too warm. I was hoping we'd have a month or so of transitional weather before it gets too cold. But maybe it will warm up a little bit this weekend.

Here's a fun poll. Winner gets a free something! I haven't decided what yet. Probably something that I have too many of, or maybe something that doesn't work anymore.

Guess my time for this weekend's Blogger 5K. (Keep in mind: My 5K PR is ~24:00, but this race will be the last 3.1 miles of a 15-16 mile run)
less than 22:00 (don't pick this one)
22:00 - 24:59
25:00 - 27:59
28:00 - 30:59
31:00 - 34:59
35:00 - 39:59
greater than 40:00

Rock on. Keith.
