Thoughts: So first run commuting injury occurred. Been the wise guy I am I decided not to wear my Icebugs and their studs on Monday and wiped out twice. Why? Well it was supposed to be super nasty that night so I figured I wanted one last run prior to having to wear the studs for a few days straight. Yeah smart move. Good part was that this past week was already a week I was considering a pull back on mileage. Turned out to be a rest week.
Other than having to get a ride a couple days from a co-worker (a first so far this year) every other day I ran. So really I am pretty satisfied as we are 70 days into the new year. Have to admit I am beginning to look forward to spring. It’s not that the cold is bothering me but it is just time. Plus winter trails versus summer trails are a completely different type of running. Besides listening to the birds in the morning, who doesn’t enjoy that.

Expenses: New shoes. Finally had to cave in and pick some up. The mileage has nearly brought to the end a couple of my old pairs. Also the warmer weather has meant more asphalt running. Therefor I don’t want to wear out my Nike Wildhorse 3’s too fast. So I splurged and picked up a pair of Hoka One One Clifton’s from Running Free and also a pair of Salomon Sense Pro’s for the trails.
Savings: Other than the past week when I didn’t run a couple days, the previous two weeks I ran everyday. Some good savings overall which managed to provide me with a cushion to pick up the new shoes.
