I only ran thrice, 6, 4, and 6. I meant to add another 4 miler in but I wussed out on running in the dark. It's actually not so bad. The good part is that it was probably better to keep the mileage low, so next week I'll do repeat but with the missing 4 miler.
The reason why I could still tell that I'm out of shape, even though the pace wasn't too difficult at all, is that a 6 miler, post run, feels the same as a 10 miler used to. I want to drink nothing but milk, my stomach gets a bit queasy, and I feel tired. Eventually I'll readjust again. (For some reason, I'm reading 'readjust' as 'read and just'.)
One bad habit I fall into during cold-weather running is to start out too fast the first mile. I do this to warm up, and it ends up ruining the run. I need to start warming up indoors first, or going on a short warm up.
Since I run in New Balance 100s, which is a trail racing flat, I'm looking forward to seeing if they work better in the snow than regular running shoes.
Things I want:
A running jacket. I have a fleece zip up jacket that really helps block the wind, but it's shrunk a bit and makes every shirt I wear underneath ride up and bunch. Bothersome. I'd like this.
Running gloves. I bought some from Target, fleece-lined, but it remains to be seen how warm they really are.
