I really do not understand this bizarre warm winter we’re having. Other than it bodes ill for this summer and beyond. Anyway, the run was just me and Steve; left hamstring still a little sore (I think I’m going to skip Wednesday’s spinning class) but not bad at all.

Wednesday: Actually met Ben before my first (normally solo) mile for a hand-off of some stuff, and then ran with him to our normal meeting point where Steve was waiting. Ended up skipping my extra (often solo) mile at the end because my left thigh was a little sore from a very intense massage on Tuesday.

Saturday: Group run! Ben, John, and Stephanie were all there for a nice 8-mile in unseasonably warm (if slightly foggy) weather. Very pleasant.

Bit better

Despite packing both cold- and warm-temperature running clothes for Sag Harbor (in case I ran outside or on a treadmill), I ended up not running at all for the rest of 2012, thanks to a little cold bug I picked up. Bah. Finally ran today, just 4 miles, and the combo of not exercising for a week, eating too much in that week, and the remnants of the cold meant it was a tough 4 miles. Glad I did it, though.
