That Was Wet

As I attempt to make Thursday morning runs part of my regular routine I wasn't about to let a little rain put me off today. However, it turned out to be a lot of rain this morning. With the recent warm weather we've had the streets and sidewalks are finally in better shape for running but Back Cove is a mess. There was still a lot of ice on the path, in many cases submerged under standing water from all the rain. It was kinda fun running through the puddles and sections of mud, I missed mud.

I had considered doing the same 9 miles that I ran last Thursday but my back has been a bit sore for the past week and although it's starting to feel better I didn't want to over-do-it. I'll wait until the weekend to over-do-it on the trails where it will at least be more fun.

weather: 37 degrees, steady rain

Hey Trail Monster,
What software are you using to make your maps.
I have a Garmin Forerunner 305 but my maps look pathetic compared to yours.

You're a better man than I am. I was on the treadmill inside the dry gym. I like your idea of overdoing it on the trails where at least you'll have fun! :)

No offense but I hope there doesn't come a day when someone says "Mindy, you're a better man than Ian"

I agree the maps are cool. The ones I get from MotionBased are crappy. Ian, what are you using, Sport Tracks?
